The professor is a great lecturer and tries to make the material as entertaining as possible. However, unless you enjoy neuroscience, it's likely that you won't find this class too interesting. Since the class was bruincasted and the lecture slides were available online, not that many people showed up to class. Personally, I found the material extremely boring, but not particularly hard to learn. If you actually attend lecture, takes notes, and study the notes and lectures slides, it shouldn't be hard to get an A. The tests are extremely straightforward. They consist of multiple choice, short one-word answer questions, and a couple short responses (1 paragraph). For the tests, you either memorized the material or you didn't, there's very little hard thinking involved.

Homework consisted of some easy (but tedious) coloring pages, but are an easy way to boost your grade. He also offers a small amount of extra credit for doing clicker questions in class. Tests usually had an median of 79-83%.
In conclusion, this is probably a little too much work if you want a super easy GE, but if you are interested in neuroscience, I think this class is worth taking.

Be. Warned.

This professor reported 1/3 of our 2020 class to the dean and accused them of cheating on the final exam (which was an online CCLE multiple choice quiz due to COVID-19). From what I've heard, most of the students did well on the test and he took that to the dean. Total jerk, makes some very strange comments in class and definitely writes hard tests. If you're a neuroscience major, you don't have a choice in taking this class so good luck, just be careful. Do not post anything on course hero either because he routinely checks that and reports students. I'm assuming it's the same for chegg. The discussions are so pointless but you have to go for points. My TA was super helpful though.

Amazing professor. I found the class a bit difficult but he tried his best to help me in office hours. Some of the weekly labs were pretty difficult and sometimes they were easy, I scored mostly 90s on the labs but messed up on one scoring in the 70s, otherwise I got a mid B on the midterm, high B on the project and a low A on the final and got a B+ in the class, so the class definitely isn’t curved at all and you want to get 90s on almost everything to get an A. If you’re ok at math and are interested in this kind of stuff then I would recommend this class.
