A very nice course, particularly if you've never taken a class in neuroscience. It is a light, well-humored introduction to the subject of how the brain deals with space. The lecturer is a tremendous professor - simple but quite effective. The only reason why it's not yet a 5-star course is because it would be nice if it contained more advanced materials and/or if it was longer (6 weeks, less than 1 hour per week, is really not that much). Still, if you're interested in the topic, and even more so if it's your first time learning about neuro-related-stuff, you'll have a great time.

The lectures were entertaining and very clear, although slightly superficial. For an introduction to the subject it was OK I guess. The quizzes were quite easy and they are the only requirement to get the Certificate of Accomplishment, so it was very easy to complete.
