    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mark Cline is a unique, down-to-earth professor; Neuroscience an obscure and exciting topic. Together, your first scholarly experience with the subject will bring an appreciation to the modern practice of leading scientists. It is required for Neuroscience majors.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the requirement that we delve into the journal articles for a few of the assignments. Here, I got exposure to the convoluted ways of professional research writing, and understood the demands of a high-profile experiment. In addition, Dr. Cline mandated we understand the entirety of a physiological system (in this case the neuron, with special focus on the Central Dogma, action potential creation and propagation, and neurotransmitter cycling). For each test we had to draw an exhaustive diagram of the former concepts. This, he argued, would establish a more holistic comprehension of Neuroscience, something he values as a practicing researcher.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Besides paying close attention and attending each lecture, use the Powerpoints he prepares for each lecture and write your notes in the 'notation' section underneath each slide. This will be a remarkable and convenient tool when studying for exams.
