"Seinfeld" fans love the show's characters specifically because they each embody their own kind of crazy, and now a professor of psychiatry is using their neuroses to teach his students.

Dr. Anthony Tobia spoke with HuffPost Live's Josh Zepps last week about how he incorporates episodes of "Seinfeld" into his courses at Rutgers University, an activity he calls "Psy-feld." Tobia reported that using the iconic sitcom in class has engaged his students in a new way, and it's prompted many serious discussions about pathology.
