okay lecturer but not captivating
By Thomas R. on 07. May 2017 for Brain Stem Components: Midbrain, Pons and Medulla Oblongata

lacklustre explanation and too concise - neuroanatomy is a subject that needs far more explanation even if just a review

Good explanation but missing topics.

I really liked the way that the Professor explains but I believe there are things missing in the course. For example, the microscopic aspect of the brain stem. I think that Neuroanatomy is a very crucial course in Med school and worth giving a little more emphasis. Thank you for helping me out !
