    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was interesting to see the inner workings of the brain and how it's all connected. This course wasn't all too heavy into the actual behavior part of it, which I was a little disappointed about. This is mostly just a brain anatomy course. Still very cool though!

    Course highlights:

    Take notes! And then take more notes! Read the book. Seriously.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters, ask questions. He's a great guy, and is super willing to help you learn and understand.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a very intensive and challenging course, however, the professor did everything she could to assist all of her students during the semester as long as the showed the initiative to do well in the class. The course exposed us to the neurological workings of a human's brain and the behavioral responses that result from inhibiting and stimulating certain areas. Additionally, we learned a lot of information about the effects of drugs and alcohol on the brain, which is extremely beneficial for college students. The education about the effects could save many college lives because they would fully understand what is happening in their brain and to their body. I wish that I had spent more time studying the material outside of the classroom and put more effort into meeting with my friends to do study sessions.

    Course highlights:

    We learned a lot of information about the classifications of drugs and the varying effects that they have on the body. We were also exposed to a lot of adolescent development information, in regards to the development of the fetus and the psychological changes that the baby goes through after being born. A lot of time was spent discussing the functioning of neurons in the brain when they are functioning normally, exposed to chemicals, or reacting to behavioral stimuli.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study as much as you possibly can, but try and be a very active reader and learner when going through the information. If you can meet with other students to do group study sessions outside of the class then you will have a much easier time. Working with your classmates is extremely beneficial because they may know how to explain the material to you in a way that you understand compared to how the professor taught it. You do not want to fall behind on the material because all of the information in the course builds off of each other so if you don't understand something then you will have a more difficult time understanding the following material.
