Being a fifth year psych student, I can confidently say that Prof. Blair was one of my favorite (if not favorite) professor! He is animated, engaging, intelligent and his powerpoints are brilliantly crafted and colorful. Many of the his experiments are very interesting and revolutionizes ideas in neuroscience. If you're a neuroscience major or are very interested in that subject matter, I HIGHLY recommend! Even though he is hard (I was taking Jentsch's neuropharm class concurrently and thought it was alot harder) you will learn so many interesting facts about neuroscience that will stick you for awhile. I think I learned the most in this class out of all of them. One tip is to make sure you understand the experiments on his powerpoints REALLY well because ?'s about it are tricky. Didn't really need the book, it was just background info. Make sure to attend lectures as it supplements ppt really well and the concepts are kinda difficult to understand if you just study ppt. alone. go to office hours and ask him to clarify because sometimes he can be a little bit unclear. Anyway, def. take his class if you're interested in entering the field! Wish I could take him again (half kidding :P)

One of the best professors I've had at UCLA. Very concerned about student learning, welcomed answers, explained things very clearly, slides were very precise and detailed. Exams were very fair. As long as you studied the slides and understood them, you'd be fine. He offered an Honors seminar, which you should do because it's easy. Attend a seminar every week and go to a seminar discussion to talk about it. I learned sooooo much from this class. It's very relevant to a lot of classes. Also, the book was AMAZING...written by one of my favorite behavioral neurobiologists, Thomas Carew.
