Many students found Professor Placenza to be a nice and approachable person who communicates the material in an articulate and enthusiastic style. Though the material was taught properly and thoroughly, many students felt that the exams were much harder than they expected. This was mainly due to the number of short answer questions being too many and also because the final was cumulative. However, students felt that because of her excellent presentation skills she should teach more courses in Neuroscience.

Many students found Professor Placenza’s lectures to be very interesting and presented in a well organized manner. Though Professor Placenza’s lecture material was very useful and relevant to the subject matter, many students found the textbook to be of little use. Suggestions to the professor include showing some videos that are relevant to the subject matter and also making the exams a bit easier.
