The practice of lecturing started with the Greeks, when books were so rare that few but the very rich had access to them. These audio lectures by university professors are selected by The Teaching Company for intellectual distinction and teaching excellence. Course 179 is too complex to listen to in long stretches, but an hour in the morning for eight days with this Stanford lecturer has updated my basic understanding of neurochemistry. Touching upon steroids, Alzheimer's disease, and hallucinogenic drugs, Professor Sapolsky relates an esoteric science to the world we live in. A course outline, diagrams, and comprehensive questions contribute to maximum learning potential. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
