Sobre o curso

This course will highlight the most interesting experiments within the field of psychology, discussing the implications of those studies for our understanding of the human mind and human behavior. We will explore the brain and some of the cognitive abilities it supports like memory, learning, attention, perception and consciousness. We will examine human development - both in terms of growing up and growing old - and will discuss the manner in which the behavior of others affect our own thoughts and behavior. Finally we will discuss various forms of mental illness and the treatments that are used to help those who suffer from them. The fact of the matter is that humans routinely do amazing things without appreciating how interesting they are. However, we are also routinely influenced by people and events without always being aware of those influences. By the end of this course you will have gained a much better understanding and appreciation of who you are and how you work. And I can guarantee you that you'll learn things that you'll be telling your friends and family about, things that will fundamentally change the way you think of yourself and others. How can you resist that?!...

Perfect start. This motivates me to learn more. Prof. Steve is my favorite teacher now. Couldn't have asked for a better person to teach me. Scratched the surface pretty well, now time to dive deeper.

I found this course very interesting and interactive. I especially enjoyed the week of extra videos where we went into detailed psychological concepts like dreaming. Thank you for an amazing 12 weeks!

I loved this course so much! I felt the professor was really engaging with our video lessons. Unlike other courses were the videos were pre-recorded by different people, the professor in this course took his own time to record the lessons and present a screen alongside his teaching.

Amazing course, it's been incredibly rewarding. However, it'd be great to restrict the peer reviews to those who will do it properly - obviously, I'm not sure how you'd do this, but it's disappointing to put in hard work to have an effortless and inaccurate assessment of your work.

Steve Joordens was an excellent lecturer who delivered well researched material and although over internet managed to be compassionate, funny and quirky. Would take another lecture from him again. As a UofT graduate I feel he made me proud of the university's high standards.

My first introduction to psychology and I found the material to be clearly and logically presented, covering both the history behind psychology as science and the way our ''psychology'' is driven by the inner biological processes. Great introduction, covering all basics.
