Currie, Paul Silver_nugget
Neuropharmacology

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Prof Currie taught well, laid back, and easily approachable. He "outsourced" the teaching of some of the major topics of the class to the students via a give-a-presentation-every-week method. Some presentations sucked, obviously put together last minute, others had substance and were informative. Each student on average gave three presentations throughout the course of the semester

The class focuses on substances of abuse and their basic pharmacology. I learned quite a bit and enjoyed the class.

Workload:

one paper, one midterm, and one final. Professor Currie is a fair grader.
