    Im not sure if I can make it, but I'll try. I have a study group Sunday around that time for a test coming up. If they cancel it though, then I'll come by.

    The class I ended up signing up with is "Synapses, Neurons, and Brains" starting on May 31st. If anyone else is interested, may be we can have a study group ?

    I have become quite a fan of (free) Coursera.org classes, I am taking several already and found them to be of good quality... I noticed one starting on March 25 called "Medical Neuroscience". Probably more than I can chew, but I thought may be others in this group may be interested. URL is: https://www.coursera.org/course/medicalneuro

    They also have other classes on brain science with titles like
    Bioelectricity: A Quantitative Approach
    Synapses, Neurons, and Brains
    Neuroethics
    Computational Neuroscience
    Drugs and the Brain

      Julio, thank you so much for posting about this site! I just signed up for a course on there: “A Beginners Guide to Irrational Behavior.” I was thrilled to see that the instructor is Dan Ariely - I've read all his books!

      I am doing that class too (Irrational behavior)! I've been doing coursera for a few months now. I am just in the middle of know thyself.
