    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because being in grad school now for neuro, there's things I'm being taught *right now* that Hendry taught me way back when. The depth and breadth of things he covers is comparable to graduate level work. I've never worked harder for a course, but it is definitely the most rewarding.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were learning gamma and tau for electrical signalling, and vision system (his specialty)

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study every day, GO TO OFFICE HOURS! He WILL remember you (and maybe cut you some slack on your tests ;) and definitely take advantage of the tutors. It also sometimes helps to get in front of a huge whiteboard and just walk yourself through the various signaling mechanisms via drawing/writing it out. It helps a lot to visualize things.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course as an in-depth, intensive introduction to the molecular and cellular basis of the human nervous system. Pulling from concepts in molecular biology, biochemistry, and organic chemistry, the course surveys what underlies many key human processes.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course was learning how the visual system works in humans, and how truly intricate and complex the mechanisms are which allow us to have see. I also enjoyed learning about the human auditory system, and how our bodies are able to convert mechanical air vibrations into what we perceive as distinct sounds.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Strong study habits are essential to succeed, as long readings are assigned for every concept introduced. The concepts also build upon themselves, so without a good understanding of a concept, it will be much harder to grasp more advanced concepts later on in the course. A student should have a strong understanding of General Chemistry, Physics, and at least General Biology.
