Class Notes
- 12.03.15 - Sensory biophysics
- 12.01.15 - Midterm
- The exam will cover material from the lectures notes of 11/10-26. Anything on the slides (and discussed in class) is fair game. The questions will be a mix of conceptual and quantitative problems (thus bringing a calculator may be helpful, though it’s not necessary). Math-wise, you will not need to solve differential equations per se, but there will be a reasonable degree of “math”. Lastly, feel free to bring a single two-sided sheet if you want, upon which you can put anything (e.g., formulae, graphs, notes, , smiley faces, etc…).
