Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is so interesting. It takes what we've learned previously and applies it to different disorders, experiments, and research that's happening right now. It also goes into how researchers are use currently using certain methods to test their hypotheses. Very valuable if you're interested in going into Neuroscience.
I learned that the brain is so immensely complex and a very delicate system. We learned about the neurobiology behind disorders such as Schizophrenia, Autism, and Alzheimers. We learned about neurotransmitters such as Serotonin, Dopamine, Acetylcholine, Histamine, and what can happen if there's too much or too little of each in the brain. We also learned about experimental models and methods used for research.

Advice for students:
Utilize the professors! They're so kind and very intelligent. They study this stuff for a living, and have a passion for it, so they're very willing to help out. Also, come to lecture with the PowerPoint slides written out and take your notes on that. They use a lot of pictures and graphs, and not many words, so write down what they say next to the images!
