I stayed in during lunch today and I thought I'd check out Coursera to see if there is something interesting to learn. I have mentioned before that I am interested to learn more about the brain and I found this course.
Understanding the Brain: The Neurobiology of Everyday Life by The University of Chicago
I signed up though the course is very long: a full 10-week course. The longest of all Coursera courses I've ever taken.
The lecturer is Dr Peggy Mason, Professor of Neurobiology and she is actually quite funny and witty at times. I completed Week 1 during lunch today, I enjoyed listening to her and I learnt so much.
It's going to be long and tedious but I am looking forward to the following 9 weeks.
