Our Feedback:

  • Required course if considering Neuroscience module

  • An incredibly interesting course if you like psychology; Dr. Mike is an incredible lecturer.

  • The course itself is very memory-based, so take detailed notes on the textbook if you’re aiming for a high 90.

  • The four exams contain only multiple choice questions, so it’s more recognition, less recall.
