Grace Santa Cruz Chavez, PhD
You can be a neuroscientist and not excel at Chemistry, but you must take it and pass the class. It is a core class and will uild your curriculum and serve a step for biochemistry, which I imagine you must take as well. I have a PhD in Neuroscience and I am not particularly fond of Chemistry. I find it interesting and the math is not difficult. But I did not have a good laboratory practice and that may have influenced my bias. Try your best. It will serve you well to know Chemistry and any course chem related to be a good neuroscience student. Good luck!
