Useful Review of General Neuroscience Topics

Overall the content of this book is well put together. I would not recommend this book to just anyone who just wants to learn about neuroscience unless they have an understanding of anatomy. The book uses too many technical anatomical words, without explaiation, for the uinitiated to follow. I would recommend this book to anyone who has had a class in anatomy or neuroscience and wants a refresher.

Poorly put together

I was excited about the idea of an audiobook that was for the study of neuroscience without all of the extraneous information included by many of producers of pop-neurosci (read: Great Courses). As a Ph.D. student in a neuroscience program, I was hoping to find a great option to recommend to some of our undergraduate students who enter our lab with a less-than-ideal coverage of neuroscience concepts. This particular audiobook, however, is far from suitable. The writers did not consider well how the information would be read, which leads to innumerable confusing (and very misleading) sentences. Moreover, the organization of the information lacks the intuitive structure of many good textbooks, whose tables of contents alone could have provided a better guideline by which to organize this audiobook. The reader is fine overall but has clearly not had anyone go over with her the pronunciation of many major terms. That is not her fault, because anyone in the field should have caught that during production. Nonetheless, it adds additional layers of confusion throughout. The world is still waiting for a really good Neuroscience audiobook, because this definitely isn't it.

Content is fine, pronunciations are atrocious

Could only listen for about 45 minutes before I had to ask to return this.

Reader either has never taken these classes or skipped Latin and Greek.

I could hardly pay attention, it felt like listening to a college freshman read their first neuroscience text out loud.

To much is given, much is expected

The products created by AudioLearn are top notched. However, it is impossible for lectures in a traditional college setting just to lecture their with out providing their students with the necessary PowerPoints for the students to have or Textbooks for their students to purchase. So, Audio lectures alone without physical content to engage with is not adequate enough to allow students to succeed.

As a student in graduate school, I appeal to the leadership of Audio Learn to make accessible the contents needed for every student to fully learn and to become successful.

Thank you for considering.

Bias, organization and outdated

Need I say more. Oh... and question 63, the narrator said heart with the answer, rather than nerve matter.
