Quarter Taken: Winter 2020 Submitted Feb. 15, 2020 Grade Received: N/A

For Trachtenberg's module, I thought the neurodevelopment material was pretty interesting and it was new information we hadn't seen in 101A or basically any biology class before. But this also made the module extremely difficult and memorization-heavy, because you have to know how all of these molecules and pathways work in brain development, and at least for me, I had never seen most of those before, so it was basically learning all of that information for the first time. So for his midterm, you'll want to put a lot of time and effort into knowing everything on his slides and from his lectures, I think the best way to study is just rewatching lectures and looking over notes, make sure you basically memorize EVERYTHING he says.

As a professor, he's not the worst but he's not the best. He tells you the information you need to know, but he's also a little bit disorganized. He goes off on 50 different tangents during one lecture and it's funny at first but then gets kind of annoying. Overall, his module isn't terrible, but it'll definitely take a lot of effort to study all of the information.

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!
