Guidelines for Oral Presentations

Neuroscience comprehensives are meant to be a learning experience for all concerned, not primarily a test. You may consult with Neuroscience faculty if you have specific questions as you prepare your presentation. (However, the faculty will not go over a draft of your presentation and give feedback or pre-approve it.)

How to prepare

Neuroscience Senior Comprehensives Instructions

In addition to the mandatory seminar attendance requirement, students must also pass a comprehensive examination:

A) Oral Presentation. Present a paper from the recent Neuroscience literature to the faculty and other senior majors and answer questions from that faculty. 

OR

B) Written Examination. Take a written exam on paper(s) from the recent Neuroscience literature. (this is the standard option)
