The class is pretty great and has a lot to offer. There is a lot of work involved, but if you have the motivation to do it the reward will be great. The professors are all sincere and truly do care for their students to learn the material.

If you want to do well in the course, it is vital that you prepare for the weekly quizzes, thoroughly do all of the labs, and make sure to get help for the writing. There are more than enough resources available for any student to succeed.

Also, the readings are important and so are the "additional readings". They provide much needed context for some major topics and are helpful.

My only problem was the play "The Hard Problem". I personally did not really like that play at all, but the discussions about consciousness that came from it were very nice. The library has the books for you to rent out for a few hours or overnight if you go in the last hour and I would recommend you do not waste 10-16 dollars on the book/ebook as you can easily read the whole thing in an hour or so!

If you have a moderate interest in the brain/neuroscience, I would highly recommend taking this course, even if it does "waste" a few GE credits.

I agree that he can be incredibly cranky. He really dislikes questions that are thinly veiled attempts to determine the content of the exam. He is not fond of academic prima donnas who expect an A and aren't afraid to let him know it. My impression is that he has little patience for interactions that indicate more concern for the letter grade than for learning the material. Avoid these transgressions and you should do OK with him. Do NOT take his crabbiness personally.

Having said all that, I thought he was one of the best professors I've had at UCLA. His lectures were excellent and made a difficult topic very clear. He was by no means "easy", but he gave us all of the tools we needed to learn the material. He answered questions posted to the webpage promptly and thoroughly. Exam questions were sometimes difficult, but straightforward. Hard work in this class really pays off.

I seriously love this guy. He is by far the best professor I have had at UCLA. His profound knowledge in the field of neuroscience coupled with his engaging teaching abilities made this class worth my time, to say the least. I came into the class dreading it, since I am north campus, but left with a great appreciation for the study of the mind and neurological diseases. He may be intimidating at first, but Dr. Levine is honestly one of the nicest professors I have ever met. I honestly loved this class! It's not the easiest G.E. but you definitely learn a lot.
