Neuroscience: From Molecules to Mind -- Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience
Very congenial, straight-forward kind of guy. He gets himself sidetracked on amusing little anecdotes sometimes, but they make for a welcome break from the material - they enhance, rather than detract from, the class. All in all I found his segment of the class interesting and well worth my time and effort. His exams are fair.
Spring 2018 - The WORST professor in the whole 101 Neuro series. Her lectures are garbage, her slides are garbage. There was no logical flow to her lectures or slides, she was all over the place and extremely hard to follow. Her test was extremely specific and she expected answers and explanations for things which she did not cover in class. Her entire module was psych based even though this was supposed to be hard science class. She gave no molecular pathway explanations for any of the phenomena she presented. She also only had 3 office hours total and cancelled the last one due to public holiday without rescheduling before the final. Overall an absolute waste of time and energy which really sucks since neuro majors are required to take this class.
His material was interesting, and he's a good lecturer. That being said, I thought his exam was too focused; the majority of the points coming from only two questions is fairly ridiculous (and I'm not simply being bitter, I actually did pretty well). And he didn't seem to care about students. At all.
Spring 2020 - Kate Wassum is an incredible professor. You can really tell she takes time to precisely organize every lecture and slide. I especially benefited from her use of Break & Review slides every 10 -15 minutes, as they really helped me to solidify my knowledge of the material. She seems like a very intelligent person, and she even uses new and unique assignments, such as the option to post a twitter thread summary of a research paper, which I thought was interesting. Also, I found her on Twitter, and her page is pretty fun to read. Overall great professor, and great module!
