I took 101B with Professor T.

BEST TEACHER IN UCLA.
He is very organized, methodical, knows exactly what he is talking about. I have no idea how I did on his test, but even without getting it back, I can saw with sure confidence that I learned A WHOLE LOT in his module.

TAKE HIM! HE ROCKS YOUR SOCKS! Wohooo!

Took Neuroscience M101B Module 1 with him.

Very straightforward module exam. The questions were right off the lecture slides, and he gave 4 easy extra credit points for an 85 point test. The average was extremely high...72.8 out of 85 (86%), but it's fine since the curve will never harm us. Some students complained that some of the questions were ambiguous, but the majority clearly disagreed, as indicated by the high exam average.

He lectures just fine. No reading required as well. Overall, zero complaints for Prof. Trachtenberg.

I really enjoyed this module on neurodevelopment! I found that material to be super interesting, and I thought Trachtenberg presented it in a clear, organized fashion. His exam was definitely challenging, but doable if you put in the proper time and effort to study. I would recommend you know the experiments discussed in lecture well. Overall, I really loved the topics discussed in this module, and wished we could have spent more time on it!

NEURO 101B

He is a great and really funny professor. He can really make you laugh out loud during the lectures and at the same time he teaches really well, keeps you interested.

His exam however is slightly annoying. Questions like: tell me everything you know about *x*... And that 'everything' is not from one lecture, you have to gather info from all the lectures because some things come out in like one slide in other lectures. You have to actually memorize the molecule names and function for each and so on.
