Pre-Lab Writeups: Be sure to prepare before each Monday Lab W riteups Be before each Monday or Wednesday labs (for WHOLE week!)!! or Wednesday – (What? Why? How? are we doing in the lab??) 2. THIS Week: Expt. 7, EMG parts 1 & 2!!! • Nerves Report #2 Due THIS week in lab. • Expt. 4 Lab Data is POSTED under “Additional Materials”. Expt. 3. Midterm 1 study guide IS updated Midterm • Review sessions this week in lab ……. Review …… • Review also on WED. morning, 9:30 AM in 16-204 (Micro/Cell Lab). Review WED. • Work-out ALL short essays!! Know your terms!! REVIEW 1.
