CSPsychologistMy fall 2011 Stanford University course How to Think Like a Psychologist is now available as a series of free, downloadable videos through iTunes university. In this fun course, I invited my favorite psychology and neuroscience researchers at Stanford to talk about their work and what it means for everyday life and real-world problems. Each class starts with a 45-min lecture by the guest speaker, followed by 30 minutes of Q&A from myself and course participants. I had a great time grilling these amazing scientists about everything from politics to education, parenting, and the scientific process.  Speakers include: Chris Bryan, Philippe Goldin, James Gross, Bridgette Martin Hard, Brian Knutson, and Greg Walton.  Check out the full course at iTunes.
