The Brain

Fall, 2020

A description of the course, and what to expect and not to expect from it, may be found here.

The principal reading assignments for this course were written by me and can be downloaded by clicking on Writeup under each topic below.  These writeups refer to illustrations which may be found at the end of the document.  Clicking on Other Stuff leads to a page of additional assigned and optional material on each topic.  Most of the links on those pages lead back to the HILR course website where only HILR members can access them (because copyright), but I can lend you a copy of something listed there if you wish.

The classes were held online (because pandemic) and recorded.  If you would like to view the recordings, let me know so I can arrange it for you.
