Considering everything the brain does, how can it possibly be the source of our personalities, dreams, thoughts, sensations, utterances, and movements?
Understanding the Brain, a 36-lecture course by award-winning Professor Jeanette Norden of Vanderbilt University, takes you inside this astonishingly complex organ and shows you how it works. With its combination of neurology, biology, and psychology, this course helps you understand how we perceive the world through our senses, how we move, how we learn and remember, and how emotions affect our thoughts and actions. Your tour starts with the organization of the central nervous system at the gross, cellular, and molecular levels, then investigates in detail how the brain accomplishes a host of tasks - from seeing and sleeping to performing music and constructing a personal identity.
You explore a broad range of exciting topics in neuroscience and come away with a deeper knowledge of how the brain is organized - and a feeling of wonder and appreciation for all that it accomplishes.

Hard to follow
A good structured course with lots of information but very hard to follow in the audio version. In the courses of Sean Carroll and Don Lincoln you find nearly all the pictures and diagrams the teachers are referring to in the pdf and this works quite well. Not so here. So if the Audible editors would rework and expand the pdf, "Understanding the Brain" could be a worthy "great course" even as audio only.
