    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Highly recommend this class to those who are pursuing a career in medicine.

    Course highlights:

    Learning how there were different language disorders due to different aphasias as well as different l

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For Dr. Meyer's class, you need to study the slides. The textbook is only for the online quizzes. He also gives you multiple chances on those quizzes too. Re-watch the lectures- it's especially helpful since most of his slides are pictures. If you don't understand what he said in lecture, you should go to his office hours- he'll explain it to you very well!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is awesome for both psychology and biology majors! It's a great sophomore class for biology majors so that they can get a great foundation for basic biology and research methods. It is also great for psychology majors that would like to go towards neuroscience graduate education. Overall, it's a great foundation course on basic neuronal networks, research methods/models and learning about the basic physiology of the mammalian/ invertebrate systems. Great overall class, and my favorite I took in undergraduate studies!

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course was learning about how crucial it was for the advancement of science and medicine through the experimentation on animal models. Of course there are limitations to animal research, however science strives to reduce, reuse and recycle these animals models and strive to limit suffering. Animal research has added more than 20 years to the lifespan of an average American. It is amazing and humbling to be able to learn more about our health through animal models. Also, not all experiments cause pain to the animals, especially within different fields of psychology.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are a serious student. Do not slack off in this course. Review your slides of the week on every weekend. Keep up on the assignments and study from the assignments given. Most times than not the exam questions come from these assignments. Also, make sure you get the correct book and read the chapters assigned before the lecture is given.
