This is a great course dealt meticulously. The carefully crafted audiovisual study material and quizzes together with very inspiring video lectures helped understand and learn with great enthusiasm.
I am currently undertaking a PhD in visual inspection techniques for aircraft maintenance tasks and i found this course excellent. Dale is a wealth of knowledge and delivered an excellent course.

This course gave me another view at the problem of visual perception. The course relates more to psychology than to medicine. Essay writing is mandatory for the completion of the course. Thanks to Professor Purves and his team from the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences.

I really liked Dr. Purves as a lecturer, and I really got a lot out of this course, including some really good illustrations and explanations. However, it was a very difficult course, and I felt the final assignment was very difficult to complete.

The course is very interesting, it explains the basic features of the human visual system in a nice and understandable way, providing many interesting example of how our perceptron is affected by the external world and our own experience.

It is a must for all those who would love to explore vision at the perspective of neuroscience and evolution.

Although the course material is absolutely fantastic. Some concepts should be elucidated further.

I don't like that the 3 and 4 star reviews are missing!
Coursera seems to sometimes remove reviews with lower numbers of starts.
I thought that this course was going to be mostly on the brain, but it wasn't at all.... just a small section.
If your main interest is in vision then it might be different, but for me being interested only in how vision relates to the brain, there was very little useful information in this course for me.

The Professor explains things in a long and sometimes confusing manner, it takes a while to get used to and understand concepts.
Plain repetition of a single theme. Pen needs to be used appropriately. Grading is extremely slow - took a month.
