Students praised this course for covering an interesting subject and having a knowledgeable and approachable instructor. Perceived issues with the course varied; multiple students found it difficult to take notes in the class as the instructor spoke quickly and lecture slides weren’t provided in advance. Suggestions for improvement varied with multiple students wishing more notes were provided to students with multiple students specifically wishing that recordings of the lectures were posted online so students could study independently. Prospective students should know that students found this course interesting and somewhat challenging and found that students should have some background in biology when coming into the course.

The best aspect of this course was Professor Kuruvilla’s refined background in the subject that drove an enlightening lecture. Students appreciated the logical lecture structure that always explored topics in detail. The worst aspect was the exam quality, which many students found to contradict the normal caliber of learning in the course. Suggestions for improving the class were to restructure the tests and better balance the time spent covering topics. Prospective students should know that being knowledgeable in biochemistry, cell biology, and nervous systems prior to the course is beneficial to success.
