The world can be a tough place, and sometimes it's hard to understand why people do the things they do. Why do we have wars? Why do we make the same mistakes over and over again?

A lot of the answers to those questions come from a better understanding of neuroscience and psychology - the science of how our brains work and affect our daily actions.

Luckily, there's an online course that can teach you just that, and show you how to use neuroscience hacks to get ahead in life - no science degree required.

That Stranger in the Mirror: Neuroscience for Everyone, takes you through all the ways the human brain controls our behaviour and our worlds - from personality types, argument styles, and the motivations that drive all of us. 

You'll also learn how to improve your memory and break bad habits using science-backed techniques.

It's pretty much an overview of some of the more practical stuff you'd learn in a neuroscience degree, but condensed into an online course that you can take from your couch.

Best of all, it's on sale at ScienceAlert Academy now for just US$29.99.
