The one star reviews are wrong.
By Dylan F. on 21. May 2019 for Direct and Indirect Basal Ganglia Pathway

Not sure what the other reviewers mean by a one star review. This is a very straightforward lecture and easy to understand. The math makes intuitive sense if you sit and think about it for a second. I don't see how this was rated 1 star.

The lecture needs improvement
By Talal A. on 20. April 2019 for Direct and Indirect Basal Ganglia Pathway

I don't understand anything in this lecture. The math might be a way for memorizing the pathway but does not help me to understand how the pathway really works.

Poor lecture
By Anslem N. on 26. December 2018 for Direct and Indirect Basal Ganglia Pathway

As for the lectures that i ve watched on lecturio, this is below standard, however,with those that i have watched so far pharmacology and pathology are 100% just listening to the their lectures is enough, but here anatomy is 20%. One will reaaly have to rely on class lectures , notes, power points etc. Really, poor.

presentation of lecture
By Bhanuprakash K. on 12. April 2018 for Structures and Intrinsic Connections of the Basal Ganglia

presentation is pretty slow and he looks like just reading from prompter rather thn really explaning structures
