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

B) Written Examination. Take a written exam on paper(s) from the recent Neuroscience literature. (Students in the Class of 2017 and beyond)
