Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Brain Evolution: Becoming Human

This was a great class although one session a week was hardly enough to cover the material. He manages to make you curious about things that others make seem dry while not reiterating things that either you should know or is presented in papers, which are posted weekly.

Lectures and power points are posted and he follows pretty closely, however stories, including questions raised by other students, make attending beneficial and enjoyable.

I'd recommend this class for anyone with an interest in psychology, neurobiology, anthropology, or general interest in any combination of those subjects.

He makes himself available and has interesting knowledge on a very wide variety of topics.

Workload:

1 midterm, 1 final, 1 power point presentation on a paper of your choice. 1-3 papers weekly, usually fairly short (and usually interesting) 2 hour class 1 day a week (class goes by quickly!)
