What people are saying

Andy V.

United States

At first I was nervous to take this course because I didn't want to listen to another motivational speaker talking about the power of my mind, but I'm happy to report that I absolutely loved this course. It's filled with fascinating brain facts, but it's also highly practical, which I thought was really valuable.

Andra N.

United States

The Brain Fitness course was brilliant and full of incredibly useful tips. I particularly enjoyed learning the practical skills - what to eat, how much to exercise and how to keep my brain young by doing simple things like taking a new route to work once in a while. I'm more inspired than ever to take those piano classes. Any tips on how to put more hours in a day? Well done!

Magda B.

I'm really interested in neuroscience so I wondered if this course would teach me anything new. Wow. I'm so happy I took the leap. I learnt so many fascinating things about the brain and how to take care of it, and in such easy-to-understand terms too!

Graham K.


I was skeptical when I first heard about this course because I know that so much neuroscience is still uncertain, but I took the leap and actually found this course to be pretty great. It's interesting and applicable. It's the ultimate pimp-your-brain kit. Fantastic.

James C.

A fascinating tour of the human brain. I had no idea there was so much that you can do to improve your own mind, and since it affects everything you do, I'd say this course is rather important for everyone!

Jonathan O.


I took this course to learn about how to improve my concentration, and I got so much more than that. Fantastic course.

Nick S.

The best of neuroscience and psychology expertly delivered by Phil Dobson in language that's easy to understand but makes you feel like a genius. Well, after taking this course, you could become one.

Natasha C.

United Kingdom

Phil Dobson does such a great job at explaining how the brain works that you don't have to be a scientist to understand this course. It's insightful, useful, accessible and really, really interesting.
