    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Brain, Mind, Behavior is a brilliant introduction to psychology and neuroscience. The course outlines the basic topics of neuroscience, covering everything from the mechanism of an action potential to explaining the basis of higher cognitive functions such as learning and memory. Both the professor and the text do well in breaking down these complex topics into understandable terms that makes biopsychology an interesting subject to explore.

    Course highlights:

    The course delves deeper into the biological bases for the behaviors and psychiatric diseases discussed in the typical Psychology 101 course. Being as fascinated by the brain as I am, learning about the specific deficiencies linked to disorders such as Parkinson's and schizophrenia, the different pathways of the sensory systems, and the theories for understanding how the brain processes emotion was endlessly intriguing, even if it was a bit difficult to learn at first.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If the class is taught by Dr. Kana like it was for me, then the tests will all be based off of the professor's lecture material, so it's in your best interest to come to class. However, the weekly online quizzes will be based off of the chapters in the textbook, so you have to be on top of your reading as well. As for most classes, it's best if you read the chapter in the text before coming to class so that you have an idea of what the material is first, and then the professor can go over it in easier terms during the lecture. If you still don't quite get it, Dr. Kana is more than happy to help you either after class or during his office hours. The class itself was slightly difficult due to the subject material being literal neuroscience, but if you're up for the challenge, go for it!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was really interesting and the professor did a great job of teaching it! All the students could tell that she wanted us to pass and tried to help us as much as she could.

    Course highlights:

    This course basically went through all of the biological and psychological parts of the body and how they related to each other. I enjoyed going through the chapters on psychological disorders and sleep.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to pay attention ad much as possible in class, because the majority of the test comes from the lecture.
