Reviews

I thought this subject was pretty good. Gives a good holistic understanding of neuroscience as a whole, and it's a good introductory course. It is quite philosophical however, and there isn't as much neuroscience as you'd actually expect. I found the lecturer to be very well-informed however he tends to not use lecture slides well - there are lots of diagrams but no writing on the slides so you have to listen well to pick up on everything he's saying. The MST was fair, and I did well on it - it's not particularly difficult, I'd suggest doing the practice questions he puts up, also making flow diagrams for studying helped me a lot (I used LucidChart). That being said, the communication on this subject was sub-par. There wasn't a discussion forum for the subject, which made it quite difficult when I was confused on certain topics. The coordinator is really nice and I emailed him about certain topics I wanted to further research, he was very helpful in pointing me in the right directions. The EOS exam was also fair - if you keep in mind how much pre-MST and post-MST content is weighted in the final and adjust your study plans accordingly, you won't find it too difficult imo. I got an 86 on this subject, and I think H1/H2A is really quite achievable.

Is not a terrible subject, although some lecturers can be quite dry. Everything is MCQ/fill in the blanks, and there is quite a bit of content, but definitely H1 achievable (I got a low H1), particularly with study groups. Not amazingly well-run, and there are definitely weird slides where Peter delves into philosophy (one of our MST questions was about how the way we think has changed over the years (???)), but most of it is doable if you put in the time.

As long as you listen to the lectures and put in effort to search up stuff you don't understand you'll be fine. I got 88 for this subject by putting in about 2-3 hours a week outside of watching lectures to brush up my understanding. The MST and EOS exam were quite easy too. Make sure to have a study group or group chat with peers and shoot each other questions if you do not understand topics too well.

Don't recommend this subject. The content taught was so ambiguous. The slides had little to no information on them, and the explanations from the lecturers did not provide a good basis of information that the lecture slides lacked. The explanations were not clear, and this made it hard to actually grasp what the topic/lecture was even about. At the end of the lectures, you are left wondering what the key information is about and with 100s of questions. For example, one lecture was about the state of consciousness, however at the end of the lecture you are left with questions as to what can be even tested from the philosophical information we were given. Every lecture felt like a vague, philosophical, blurb like explanation of neuroscience topics, however the MSTs and exams didnt reflect the vague explanations, rather required a really high standard and application based knowledge of neuroscience concepts which we didnt even get from the lectures itself. The MSTs and exams were so different in the level of difficulty that was taught in the subject itself, which made it demotivating to even enjoy the subject halfway through the semester despite being a science student.

Stay very very far away if you enjoy well-structured lectures, clear concise explanations and assessments based on the key learning objectives. This lecturer just rambles on about non-important tangents, does not include clear slides with key information and when he misses half the assessible content in his lectures as he runs out of time, he vaguely describes the missed content in the description of his lecture. From the perspective of a science student, this subject seems more like a very low-effort series of talks about random trivia related to Neuroscience, than something you would expect from a science subject.

I love neuroscience so I might be biased. But it was pretty good. Peter is knowledgeable. And Joel is a really nice person to be honest, despite his tangents haha. The only problem is there is just way too many students in this subject and no tutorial.

Literally the worst subject I've ever done. Subject was definitely poorly coordinated, with little input from the lecturers. Concepts could definitely be explained in a much clearer way, but instead some made it even more confusing. Assessed questions sometimes involve concepts which weren't even explained properly, and also expect you to make certain assumptions, which is ridiculous because it can be subjective. Despite it being MCQ exam and MSTs, in my opinion it is not worth it as I felt it was much harder to score well compared to other subjects.

Can definitely say it was an enjoyable subject. This subject was a wonderful overview of the key areas of Neuroscience, although personally I felt that the content was quite basic (as a third year). Lecturing style of the main lecturer (Peter Kitchener) might not suit some people - it's a bit like listening to a fun podcast, where you kinda have no idea what to learn for the exam. But then, he provides a summary of the key points on the LMS for each lecture and this is very helpful for exam prep! I was one of the people who had a hard time choosing their major (Neuro vs HSF) but I definitely do not regret choosing HSF as my major & doing neuro electives! Still able to get a good grasp of neuroscience, as there's so much you can learn in your own time from textbooks and papers. :)

Engaging subject that covers a wide variety of topics related to the vast and continuously growing field of neuroscience. Does a good job of balancing the hardcore science and more philosophical aspects. Really not a difficult subject if you stay on top of lectures. Would definitely recommend.

Very interesting course to give you the an understanding of the fundamentals of neuroscience.
