20010 Fall Quarter, NPB12, Page: 1 NPB 12 Fall Quarter, 2010 CRN# 72121 Human Brain and Disease Instructor: Hwai-Jong Cheng 752-5323 hjcheng@ucdavis.edu Teaching Assistant: Kevin Hill 297-4426 kthill@ucdavis.edu Lectures are on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1:40 – 3:00 pm in CHEM 194. Office hours: Hwai-Jong Cheng: Mondays (Except 9/27), 3:00 – 5:00 pm in SLB 2041A. Kevin Hill: Wednesdays, 4:00 – 6:00 pm in SLB 2041A. Grading: The grade is based on the two midterms (20 and 30 percent) and a comprehensive final (50 percent). The exams will require you to remember what was presented in lectures and lecture notes (approximately 50%), and to USE THAT INFORMATION to solve new problems (approximately 50%). The letter grade is assigned at the end of the course. This final grade is dependent on the total number of points and is based on how many points you have relative to your classmates (i.e. it is on a curve). The average score on the exams is usually around 60%, which should be considered a “B-” (not a “D” as in some classes you may have had). In principle, those students that come to all of the lectures, pay attention, and give a good effort should get an “A”. On the other hand, the students that only do the readings and only attend a few lectures might get a “C” or worse. Exams are based on material covered in lectures and lecture notes. Lecture notes will be provided as pdf files a few days before the lecture on SmartSite. The lecture notes overlap a great deal with the lecture material, but there will be deviations and some topics will be covered in a greater or lesser depth (or not at all) in the lecture than in the lecture notes, and other topics
