    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a broad-spanning yet detailed investigation into the nervous system which sets students up for more advanced neuroscience courses very well. Stein and Paradiso are very engaging lecturers who teach other very interesting advanced courses, so it's a good idea to get to know them early on.

    Course highlights:

    Central and peripheral nervous system, oratory, olfactory, and visual systems. A lot of guest lecturers come and speak in the class from different neuroscience specialties at Brown. The textbook is a great resource to the course, and you'll never be lost if you stay on top of the readings!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to office hours, study with other people in the class, do the optional homeworks, and stay on top of the readings.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Both professor Stein and Paradiso are very knowledgeable about their field and very available to meet with or ask questions. The class covers a very broad and deep knowledge of neuroscience and features many guest lecturers from Brown's neuroscience department, so for concentrators it's a helpful preview of your possible research mentors and teachers. Overall, the class is extremely interesting and rigorous so I highly recommend it!

    Course highlights:

    Learning about the molecular processes inside of neurons and various neurotransmitters, although somewhat dense as class material, was extremely helpful. I've always found Neuro fascinating on a macro scale, in terms of how diseases progress and their neurological symptoms, but understanding addiction and memory on a molecular level informed what I already understood and gave me a better understanding of how different hypothetical drugs and situations could affect those processes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study groups are extremely helpful, and make sure you go to TA sections and do practice exams before the real ones. The TAs are veeery good at what they do and are very flexible if you need to meet last minute to ask questions and clarify concepts before the exam. Practice exams (along with TA advice) are the best way to know what will be focused on in the current year's exam.
