Confusing and superficial
By Neuer N. on 16. March 2018 for Limbic System

Unfortunately I found the course confusing and superficial. In my opinion, it would be important that all the structures of the system be shown, while explaining their functions, for example. Sorry for any mistake, but I'm not used to writing in english.

Limbic system made simple and relevant

I enjoyed watching this introduction to the limbic system and the conditions were very insightful. Thank you.

Perfectly clear overview on a rather complicated matter!
By Julie D. on 04. August 2017 for Clinical Correlations: Wernicke–Korsakoff Syndrome (WKS), Klüver–Bucy Syndrome and Alzheimer´s Disease

Very well-explained and thus helpful lectures! Also, the images are better than anywhere else.
