Awesome lecture!! I will remember about 2.6 micrometers of the sarcomere relaxed. Are very useful your methods to remember the bands and your professor question. Thanks dr. Geoffrey Meyer

Your histo lectures are awesome
By Laura P. on 16. June 2017 for Connective Tissue

I really enjoy to listen your lectures. Are awesome because you can understand everything. In my opinion sometimes are missing few things but nothing to compare with the whole lecture!!! THanks dr. Geoffrey Meyer

Great Lecturer
By Michael T. on 22. May 2017 for Nerve Tissue

Lecturer is great and thorough, I like that he takes space so that you can note something down etc.

It's like listening to Siri narrate a Wikipedia article
By David D. on 18. May 2017 for Nerve Tissue: Organisation of the Nervous System, Neuron and Spinal Cord

I can't follow the lecturer; his pauses and breaks are distracting from the material. All of his material sounds like he's reading off of a teleprompter
