Good.
By Alisha W. on 12. February 2019 for Eyeball and Retina

This is nice a clear and well paced lecture. It's easy to understand. Thanks.

 
Needs more information about the photoreceptors, but quite good otherwise
By Matthieu M. on 07. February 2019 for Eyeball and Retina

I think you could have gone in a little more in depth into the structure of photoreceptors. There were also a few other cells, such as the horizontal cells which backpack onto parts of the visual pathway-this knowledge is essential to understanding concepts of contrast. overall i do think it was a good lecture, but a little more depth into the vitreous humour and the aquous humour would have also helped

 
good summary and clear presentation
By Lan W. on 20. January 2019 for Brain Stem Components: Midbrain, Pons and Medulla Oblongata

good summary and clear presentation with those details are often missed in other review lectures. Good job.

 
Well paced, but poor diagram
By Matthieu M. on 19. January 2019 for Dura Mater, Arachnoid Mater and Pia Mater

The organisation of the layers of the meninges and outer regions of the cranium were well put together, but the diagram regarding in the infoldings (falx cerebrum...etc) was poor. I could find way better diagrams with a simple search onto google
