Self-study Neuroscience

I’m all for self-studying, including going through an entire college curriculum on your own, in less time than a traditional four-year program.

Based on several schools (Yale, Harvard, MIT, Johns Hopkins, University of Pennsylvania, and Oxford University) I have created a 1.5-year study curriculum in neuroscience, using open-courseware.
