This lecture consists of45 units and we intend to ask questions from each of the different units covering the entire lecture.
Each lecturer provides three short and one assay questions for each of the 45 units newly each year. This represents the pool of questions used for the different exams for this year’s lecture. Each professor corrects his own questions. The final grading is important to continue with the hands-on practical neuroscience course Basics of Neuroscience.
