best course in Psycology ever!

Jeremy Wolf PhD'81 is one of the best, if not the best, lecturer at MIT. As long as he has been teaching Introduction to Psychology (9.00), it has been substantially oversubscribed. He has received consistent rave reviews in the Course Evaluation Guide (earning a 6.4 on a scale of 1-7 this year), earning the highest evaluation of any professor for a class that size.

The human brain is the most complex, sophisticated, and powerful information-processing device known.

To study its complexities, the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology combines the experimental technologies of neurobiology, neuroscience, and psychology, with the theoretical power that comes from the fields of computational neuroscience and cognitive science.

Since the field of brain and cognitive sciences is relatively young and extremely dynamic, there is no single text that encompasses the subject matter covered in most of the classes offered by the department. To educate and train future scientists, readings are from primary journal articles or research papers. This approach provides broad coverage, as well as the depth needed, so that students are exposed to cutting-edge knowledge in the various specialties of neuroscience and cognitive science. Browsing the course materials in MIT OpenCourseWare, the jewels are revealed in the detailed reading lists that provide a window on the current thinking in each subject.
