Overview

The programme

What are people most afraid of? What do our dreams mean? Are we natural-born racists? What makes us happy? What are the causes and cures of mental illness? This Introduction to Psychology offered by Coursera in partnership with Yale explores topics such as perception, communication, learning, memory, decision-making, persuasion, emotions, and social behavior.  We will look at how these aspects of the mind develop in children, how they differ across people, how they are wired-up in the brain, and how they break down due to illness and injury.
