    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is intriguing. Professor Woodruff is a very funny and energetic guy. He is late sometimes and sometimes he is confusing but just pay attention and you will get by in this class! His exams aren't too difficult but don't ignore studying, pay attention to study guides and utilize your textbook. His lectures are fun which makes this whole class easier and worth learning.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me were the abnormalities that can happen even with the slightest changes of your brain. For example the brochas area. That to me was the most fascinating. Professor Woodruff allows you to watch videos over this, as well as group discussion (which I hate) but he doesn't overdo it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the study guides and utilize the textbook. Go over his lectures if you must, but otherwise, pay attention!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is vital to ones overall understanding of both the human mind and body. Anyone who takes an interest in medicine, biology, anthropology, or psychology could benefit from studying the worlds most intricate computer, neuroscience.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned there is no such thing as free will. Neuroscience shows us that every choice we make, ever idea we have, is purely the result of chemical and electrical signals. There is no soul, just these millions upon millions of connections in the vast area that we call our minds.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is one of the more intricate field of psychology so make sure to pay attention. Also, outside research is vital, the more you learn on your own the easier it is to learn the harder things in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The subject matter was so interesting; whenever I got out of the class, I found myself wanting to tell my friends all about what I had learned!

    Course highlights:

    Professor Whetton's interactive style of teaching really brought the material to life. I also liked the way he had frequent short quizzes, as opposed to a few huge midterms and a final, because it forced us to keep up with the material at all times, especially since the quizzes often tested us on material that was covered earlier in the class. I learned so much, I don't know where to beging describing it, but as an example, I learned that during REM sleep, the body is physically paralyzed; if it weren't, we would act out or dreams, and potentially hurt ourselves or others.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't let the course's title scare you - the subject matter is so interesting, and Professor Whetton does such a great job of presenting it, that it's sure to be one of your favorite classes, as it was mine.
