What are the causes and cures of mental illness? This course tries to answer these questions and many others, providing a comprehensive overview of the scientific study of thought and behavior. This course covers every important aspect of the science of the mind. It explores topics such as perception, communication, learning, memory, decision-making, persuasion, emotions, and social behavior.
