Rated 5 out of 5 by from Critical insight This course seems to focus on critical understandings that are only touched on in other courses about the brain. How we evolved from lower animals and how our brains evolved from lower animals is crucial to understanding how our brain works, how our brain develops and how we learn and interact with one another. I found the lecture very exciting and can't wait to see the next lecture.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from All Over The Place The lecture seemed to meander all over the place and often be repetitive. It also seemed to go on forever since it lacked the kind of logical structure that leads you through a topic. The lecturer is so-so and uses examples that are far-fetched, forced and too "cute" for my taste.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too much "history" of the brain Not too interesting, just listening to her talk. I presume the later lectures will include real time pictures and talk about the development of the brain. I guess this is okay for beginners who have not studied biology, but I wasn't looking for a lecture on evolution, really. I give it a 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The structure of the course is on target for me as a novice to the brain. She easily made me comfortable in learning the history of the development of the brain. Hopefully in future lectures, she can keep it easy to learn as well as enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of evolutional brain development This lecture was very interesting and clearly and pleasantly presented. More could be added regarding the research and effects of its influence on our behaviour over lifetimes. Describing and explaining the current research on the subject would also be helpful. Hoping to hear more from this lecturer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More please This has been a neat introduction. Presented well, logically and relevantly. It was very accessible to one like me who has an interest but not a lot of knowledge in the area. More please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great introduction Loved the presentation style and introduction to this topic. Enjoyed the general context in which the ideas were developed. Would have liked more examples to many of the ideas. Looking forward to the next lectures.

Overview

Trace the evolutionary history of humans and how the modern world and its technologies affect how our brains develop.
The Developing Brain

01: The Developing Brain

Measured nucleotide by nucleotide, the human genome is nearly 99% identical to that of the chimpanzee. So why don’t we live in trees? Professor Gabrielle Principe takes us back 2 million years to learn how the choices we made back then have kept our species alive, and how the modern world and its technologies continue to affect how our brains develop.
