    I am just wondering how many of you (a) have a required neuroscience course and (b) how in depth it is.

    1st and 2nd year. 1st years was mostly neuroanatomy with cadavers and a lot of brainstem/cord sections with physiology too. 2nd year is mostly pathology, diseases, pharm, treatment, etc.
  4. 1st year neuroanatomy
    2nd year neurophysiology
    3rd year neuroscience-basically everything over again + pathology + pharmacology with an emphasis on clinical exams/treatment/presentations.

    in my opinion, none of it is/was/will be fun!!! :rolleyes:

    We're taking a course that combines neuro (cellular and physio aspects), neuroanatomy, and behavioral study. We're also studying clinical case studies which is a major component in our neuroanatomy lab. I geuss next year the pathological aspects would be studied under Pathology.

    The behavioral aspect is a big component of the course but we don't delve into the details like we do with the other stuff. Half the time the lecturers will highlight points with rambling stories, which is always welcome in my book.

    Is neuroscience in medical school different than the neuroscience taught in undergrad? It seems that everyone hates neuroscience in medical school, but in undergrad, people (including me) seem to love it and find it fascinating. What gives?

    To an undergrad neuroscience is probably really interesting because all the other classes suck. To a med student it's the other classes that are much more interesting and relevant to the practice of medicine and its neuroscience that sucks. Too much detail obscures the big concepts and in the long run is a detriment.
