This class was tough.
Professor Knight is an lively and energetic, which is necessary for such an early morning class. He offers a very clinical approach, integrating both neuroscience and the practice of clinical neurology into his lectures. It's an information heavy course, but it is great foundation for those interested in neurology or doing research in the realm of brain-related disorder.
The course was a great introduction to the brain mechanisms behind many neurological related diseases. For example, you learn what causes Parkisons, Huntington's, and Alzheimers. You also get insight into different cancers that impact the brain.

Advice for students:
I would remind students that the course is information intensive and the powerpoints are not saturated with a lot of detailed note, meaning attending lecture will be crucial for success. Understanding the study guides that the Professor and GSIs have created will be paramount for success. In addition, note that the Professor does not follow or utilize the class book.
