Goodbye, and see you soon!

This is the last article of our course.

We hope you’ve enjoyed learning about the relationship between food and our minds, brain and bodies. In these weeks we have touched on numerous different topics. The neurosciences and neurobiology probably had the greatest share of the courses, but in weeks 2 and 3 psychology had a robust presence as well.

This interplay and multiplicity of arguments give you a good idea of what happens every day in a neuroscience department. Clinical psychologists, neuroscientists, medical doctors and biologists all try to understand the same phenomenon, but with very different tools and from very different points of views.

Some of you might have preferred the psychological topics, others were more interested in biology. Like we said at the beginning, no answer is wrong here. Whatever was your main interest, we hope to have been able to show you something about the other side of the moon.

How did the course go? In the last poll we asked you what you liked the most, but what about the things you did not like? Was there anything you were hoping to get out of the course that was not covered, or we should have covered in a different way? What we could improve in the next edition of this course?

Are you interested in learning more? Tell us by giving your comment! We will be happy to share advice about other study resources, and we hope your fellow students will share their learning experiences with you.
