Great class, but tough. Attendance and thorough note-taking is a must. He can be a bit scattered at times, but incredibly intelligent.

Intro to Neuroscience. EXTREMELY challenging. A lot of Cell Biology and Physics, I recommend taking those classes before this one because it is a struggle. It is all exams. He does lectures by mostly talking, so listening and taking notes are important. Also recommend buying a recorder. GOOD LUCK.

I loved this class and Dr. Dowse. I really liked his exam format and the fact that we only had to take 3 of the 4 exams. Exams are exclusively over lecture material, and you definitely have to study a lot for them. He is really intelligent and hilarious and I highly recommend the class and the professor.

Just finished taking Dowse's Intro to Neuroscience class. While it was one of the most challenging classes I've taken, I also learned, by far, more than in any class. Tests are challenging, but if you go to all the classes and study as a group, the class is definitely doable.

Must take detailed notes to pick out vaugely detailed vocab. I taught myself 90% through the book. He is very unclear about test procedures. If you feel you are not ready to take a test do not show up... the optionals are very easy. I was stupid, 93,64,87,95. He wouldnt allow me to drop the low score even though some skipped.Hates to grade.

Hard class with hard tests. The notes he gives in class are scattered and not really helpful. Do not take this class if you are not ready to study alot.

Amazing teacher, I don't think I've learned as much in any other class. Funny guy too, just throws in some really amusing mental images. Very challenging course though, with difficult tests. If you're not ready to spend a lot of time studying, this is not the place for you.
