Study Tips Neuroanatomy
Study Tips Neuroanatomy are concrete additions to your study strategy, First of all to make your study more successful and at the same time more fun with optimal use of the resources
Study Tip Neuroanatomy 1.
First of all: Visualize neuroanatomy. Teaching assistants(=mentors) have passed the first course successfully and have spent a lot of time visualizing the neuroanatomy.
Visualize in a way that you enjoy and ‘ll simultaneously learn as you have fun making the visualization. You can have a look at the page Visualize your knowledge and let the work of members of our learning community inspire you.
