Always Do the Reading
This class was tough.
This was an extremely hard course. But Dr. Newbern was fantastic and fair. I felt that the information could be overwhelming at times, but the knowledge was worth it. Dr. Newbern was also constantly making us aware of real-life applications and research involving what we were learning.
We had an entire lecture on autism and another lecture on schizophrenia. They were both extremely enlightening and put to rest a lot of myths and misunderstood ideas revolving around each disease.

Advice for students:
Learn the first couple chapters thoroughly. They are basics for the rest of the semester. Know your neurotransmitters and their receptors. The differences and connections between glutamate and GABA neurotransmitters and receptors and G-protein coupled receptors, AMPA, NMDA, etc. Potentiation and Depression are important and easy to confuse, so study them until you understand them completely.
