For more video lectures, see index.

Robert Sapolsky is Professor of Biological Sciences and Professor of Neurology and Neurological Sciences at Standford University. He held a course in human behavioral ecology at Stanford back in 2010. It consists of two parts. The first part serves as an introduction to various partial explanations for human behavior and the second part puts it all together.

Topics covered include evolution, molecular genetics, behavioral genetics, endocrinology, neuroscience, human sexual behavior, aggression, reductionism and emergence, language, schizophrenia and individual differences. It was designed not to require any background knowledge. Read more of this post

Index for Video Lectures

More and more universities are putting video series of entire courses taught at their institutions online for everyone in the world to see for free. This vastly expands the possibility of learning topics. The goal is not to post all possible video lectures that can be found, but rather some of my personal favorites, in areas such as physics, biology, chemistry and psychology. Also, I will not limit myself to just posting entire courses, but also videos that I enjoyed for their academic and/or intellectual content.

This is the index for all posts about video lectures.

Physics

Biology

Psychology
