Neuroscience was a class at Duke West newly established for 2005 after multiple participants of 2004's Intro to Medical Science class requested it. It is called "The Brain, Intelligence, and Creativity" at UGA, but is also known as "The Brain." '

2009

Term I

The teacher was Alex, a UNC-Chapel Hill graduate, which made for some awkward T-shirt moments on campus, while the TA was Billy, who tried to teach the class how to be even fractionally as cool as him. Lots of field trips to UNC, lots of technical difficulties, lots of getting REALLY lost in the French Family Science Center.

2011

Term II

  • Class Cheer:

Neuroscience beats Forensics, each and everyday. Cadavers, guns, and hit 'n runs, No one cares anyway! Go Neuroscience!

The last line was the part Jason wanted to add.. he was typically the only one who said it.

The greatness of Duke West Neuroscience 2011 Term II cannot even be put into words. Enzymes with Machine Guns, gold stars (and black holes!), Jason trees, and a cat named The Present King of France AKA Sven Franklin but You Can Just Call Him Sven. Need I say more? In a related note, on the swag scale, there is maximum swag and then Shane Swag. Shane Swag > Maximum Swag. Jason was beginning to register on the swag scale until he coined the term "swag-a-licious." On that day not only did he fall off of the Swag Scale, but he broke the Loser Scale. Sorry Jason, there is no coming back from that one. Jason is definitely a BrainBowl Nazi. Nazis are not cool. Jason also has a thesis that you should download and read all seventy-something pages of. The topic is actually pretty interesting! Google "Jason Shepard psychology" and its one of the first results.
