I took Neuroscience 102 with Dr. Scheibel. Many neuroscience majors say neuroscience 102 is the hardest class they have had to take, but I beg to differ. Although his class is very challenging, Dr. Scheibel teaches it very, very well. I found Neuroscience M101A to be harder than Neuro 102 in this regard. It's amazing how an 84-y/o professor makes material a lot more interesting than the 101 professors do, and 101 professors are half his age. He is also very professional; for example, in one lecture after a quiz, not many people showed up. He gave the lecture as if he were delivering to a 200-seater seminar for VIP's, which is the way he does it every single lecture. He will treat you with utmost respect. His 20-minute quizzes are the "midterms" in this class. I personally found the T/F and multiple choice questions harder than those quizzes in which we had to identify structures on slides and trace connections. I got a 70% on quiz 1, 95% on quiz 2, 99% on quiz 3, and 75% on the final. Too bad I choked on the final (Neuro 101A had a final just twelve hours before); I wish I could tell you I got an A or A-, but I got a B. But hey, I have no complaints about him or his class. It was spectacular. If I had to take Neuro 102 again with him or his graduate-level neuroanatomy class, I ABSOLUTELY would.
