Straight to the point.
By Emma K. on 31. December 2022 for Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS): Output and Thoracolumbar Outflow

Simple and concise explanation. Covered all necessary aspects without elaborating too much on details.

Excellent Overview of PNS
By Daryl T. on 18. September 2021 for Parasympathetic Nervous System (PSNS)

I'm a first year medical student and the lectures that we have had on the autonomics have not been clear or understandable at all. The set of lecture materials and the lectures that Lecture has provided has GREATLY increased my understanding and made my exam prep much easier.

By Camila F. on 17. April 2021 for Overview of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)

Easy to understand. Loved the colors used to distinguish sympathetic from parasympathetic, that really helped.

Highly recommended
