The Human Brain: A Free Online Course from MIT

From MIT comes The Human Brain, a series of 18 lec­tures pre­sent­ed by Pro­fes­sor Nan­cy Kan­wish­er. They’re from a course that “sur­veys the core per­cep­tu­al and cog­ni­tive abil­i­ties of the human mind and asks how they are imple­ment­ed in the brain. Key themes include the rep­re­sen­ta­tions, devel­op­ment, and degree of func­tion­al speci­fici­ty of these com­po­nents of mind and brain. The course will take stu­dents straight to the cut­ting edge of the field, empow­er­ing them to under­stand and crit­i­cal­ly eval­u­ate empir­i­cal arti­cles in the cur­rent lit­er­a­ture.”

Watch all of the lec­tures above, and find them added to our list of Free Biol­o­gy Cours­es, a sub­set of our col­lec­tion 1,700 Free Online Cours­es from Top Uni­ver­si­ties.
