    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Kravitz is a highly knowledgeable lecturer. Be prepared to be challenged--by the material and the professor alike--and to learn A LOT. The course can sometimes feel as if it's moving at a dizzying pace, but don't let that intimidate you. Tests are thorough, but very doable. Don't sweat the small stuff. You will be expected to understand and explain broad concepts, which themselves may be explored through minutiae during lecture in order to supplement your knowledge. Dr. Kravitz is approachable and accessible. This course is great for those who may be interested in cognitive neuroscience.

    Course highlights:

    You will learn about the structure and pathways of the brain and how they relate to human behavioral phenomena. Topics include decision-making, communication, attention, sensory processes, and an overview of synaptic physiology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Dr. Kravitz's lecture slides are your best friend. He posts them for his students to use, and they contain all the information you need in order to succeed in his class. Ergo, don't waste time copying his slides verbatim during lecture. Take notes that connect concepts and make sense of the new material you're being taught. Know when to ask for help, and don't be afraid to ask for it. Oh, and if you're going to take this course, start the research paper early. You're going to want it to be good.
