I recently finished another of the ‘Great Courses’ on Human Behavior.

Key take aways

  1. There are many interesting components on how the brain works. All the components of executive function, memory, recognition and recall. Lectures were great and nicely chunked up.
  2. Various ways to understand memory functions, perception and the interaction with various brain systems with the nervous system.
  3. Also covers the various ways the brain can ‘break’ from a chemical standpoint and how those chemical dysfunction manifests in various disorders and or mental illnesses and how they are diagnosed.
  4. Uni polar and bi polar disorders, substance abuse and dependency disorders. Very interesting to see how various interactions can occur that affect a ton of people everyday.
