Biology major with a focus on neuroscience checking in. Sometimes I get so buried in my textbooks, lab, and research, I forget how to apply what I'm learning about my brain to my own brain! Phew. I know, inception. This course was relatively easy for me. I imagine it will be for most people. Still, I'm amazed at how much I've actually learned. There are so many awesome "hacks" I could use to make the most of my study time. I also find I've gotten better at explaining concept topics in neuroscience by imitating how the instructors explain things to my non-bio peers. If my uni offered something like this it'd be called "Introduction to Applied Neuroscience".
Easily the best bang for my time. Very succinct, but deeply packed morsels of brain food. I wish there were more of these informative short MOOCs for every subject!
This course made me aware that I was using a lot of learning techniques already, so it was cool to see why they work. The subject matter is really interesting!
I wish I found out about this class sooner because I think it could have helped me in high school and uni. Still, I have a few exams coming up for work. Hopefully I can apply Dr. Oakley and Dr. Terrence's teachings to them.
