Dr. Lester is a well prepared lecturer and the research used in this course is current. I would take the course again just to learn more about the diseases covered such as Parkinson, Alzheimer's and depression among others. The physiology of the brain is very complex and takes years to learn as research is new everyday. Thank you for the time you spent developing this course.
