    Pretty easy, overall.

    Anatomy of the brain, the brain cells, some diseases of the brain etc.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best way to study for these are flashcards. Just memorize all the concepts and use mnemonics. If you don't fully understand what is happening, Youtube Crash Course Nervous System and they will give you an entertaining overview of the nervous system

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course, this professor provides a lot of information and the appropriate amount to succeed on your exams. He also allows a cool and fun environment for all those lectures you're going to be having. Thomas Kidd also brings in many guest speakers in the same fields that a neuroscience student might be interested in going into, that was we can learn what our careers are going to be like and to hear their stories of schooling and life so far in their field.

    Course highlights:

    We leaned much about how the body functions as far as what the brain triggers and how axons in the brain send electrical impulses in order for our bodies to respond in any manner. The biggest highlights of this course will be all of the guest speakers that he brings in to speak to the class. These speakers let us know how their schooling was and what we can expect in the future.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    make sure that you study for your exams, get groups of people and go to the library, his exams are easy, but only if you know the content.
