The material is presented in an easy to remember and understand format. Information is repeated several times during a lecture. The videos chosen enhanced understanding and engagement in the lectures.
This is a great course.I'm a film lover and a psychology student.This method of learning [learning through movies] more effect than the usual learning. Hope to see more courses like this in future.

I found the course very interesting & was fascinated to learn how memory works.
As I'm 86 years old it gives me hope that I can keep my hippocampus functioning.

Really good course. Very well explained and the films made it more relevant and memorable. Challenging questions in the quiz made me think harder. Highly recommended.

Calm presentation that slowly helps you to understand the real workings of the mind and memory...good for teachers such as myself and homecare nurses such as my wife.

It was super entertaining and cool but the best part is that I understood many things I didn't know and now I know some things that are helping me with my memory.
