If you don't have previous lab experience, you probably can't get a solid A; she's a pretty tough grader. It's a great lab to take P/D/F if you're interested in the subject matter and can handle a bit of blood and guts.

The lab practical is intense, so be prepared!

Workload:

Not too bad at all, you can Ctrl+F all the answers for problem sets. Only two written labs for the whole semester.

Yes, in the beginning Taylor can be intimidating. But if you ever go and talk to her after class--she is so nice. She knows everything there is to know about neuroscience, The lab was a lot of work, but if you put in the time it is definitely possible to do well in this class.

Very sarcastic but down-to-earth and understanding. She is a mother before a teacher which might explain her "laziness" but it gets annoying when you never see your prelabs that are supposed to prepare you for writing lab reports. most of your time is spent watching rats fall asleep so bring something to read. you perform two surgeries which can get gross but very new.

Workload:

not bad: questions before each lab, 3 lab reports (6-8 pgs), and a test that's easy if you study.

Those students who are irritated by Prof. Taylor are the ones interested in a class that is all-games-no-work. She explains things well in lecture, and gives extensive directions for the lab reports. And if you don't like how long it takes to get reports back, complain about/to the TA first.

Workload:

As long as you don't leave reports until the night before they are due, its fine.
