I learned a lot from this course that I have been able to use in a ministry capacity. If you are trying to help others with addiction or understand it for yourself, this is the course for you.

This course is truly wonderful, many intellectual mind-opening surprises... for example I almost fell out of my chair when I learned of vaccinations development effort to counter addiction.

I enjoyed the material and flow of topics presented. I did have some trouble getting a few of the videos to load in the module on Neurotransmission (week 5), which was unfortunate. Very interesting, thanks!

Very well-presented course with excellent illustrations. Gives a good overview on addiction with pharmacology, with good links to further reading. I found the title slightly misleading though, as the course presented very little information on brain physiology except for the dopamine receptors.

So far, very educational , would appreciate if the videos would be little more discriptive

A great insight into the addicted brain and what can be done about it all. A great broad introduction into drug addiction and the brain.

Somewhat too simple, but still a good basic introduction.

Maybe too easy... And too focused on the society more than on the brain itself. Enjoyed it though.

Well, I expected more and more debt, It seems the course is oriented to the general public.

Knowledgeable professor. Distracting background. I prefer direct eye contact rather than having the professor sometimes filmed not looking directly at the camera. But the course gave excellent information and I enjoyed it.

Maybe because I am a med graduate already I expected much more from this course. It was ok, but my impression was always like there was too much of talking what important stuff is going to be discussed, but not really the facts themselves. I would rather learn more practical knowledge. Anyway I learnt some new things as well.

I was a bit disappointed about the lack of exposure to different models for thinking about addiction and the effects of addiction on the brain. Current theories were presented as "facts"; correlations were presented as causation without further considerations of alternative perspectives. It was a satisfactory very basic overview of current thinking about addiction, but would benefit from a wider consideration of different models.

The course satisfied me in various aspects. It is brief and clear. Thank you for our instructor for nice presentations.
Nevertheless, I would expect more about pharma and treatment apporaches. More about drugs available in the markets and new trends.
Psychotherapy applications / demonstrations would be very useful.

Course give very good information, but the "The addicted brain" its not the correct name.
Second part of the course give more detail information about different drugs and body biology, but its not directly related to the Brain.
However, the training its very good, just change the label.

I learned some important concepts, but all of the material was repeated many times. If the redundancy of information were eliminated, imagine how much more students of this course could learn!

Worth skimming fast through for free to learn a little something about the brain. Don't expect to learn much about the brain though. The title is a little misleading.
