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.

A traves de las peliculas sentimos empatia hacia ciertas circunstancias y aprendemos con el ejemplo de la experiencia de otros. Este curso ha sido muy instructivo

I enjoyed learning about how memory works through the movies. Having a 'picture' of each memory topic helped it come to life and made learning more enjoyable.

It was a a great idea to illustrate the various concepts with movies. This made a more enjoyable exercise of what could be a fairly dry subject.

An eye opener to my ignorance about memory and how it functions. Using movies as a gateway to explain the intricacies of memory is a great idea.... Thank you!

First time taking a psychology course. Highly recommend this--especially for film majors looking for a fascinating course outside their preferred discipline.
