Comments from 200-level undergraduate students at UNC Asheville who played Forbidden Neurds as an classroom activity in Spring 2022:

  • “This was the most fun I’ve had as a part of a review in class”
  • “I think it was a good way to review what one does know and what one doesn’t know!”
  • “The game is informative and it points out areas I have not mastered yet so it serves as a guide as to how to focus studying.”

Forbidden Neurds was created & designed by Dr. Angel Kaur, Associate Professor of Neuroscience at UNC Asheville. Dr. Kaur has published and presented on game-based learning in the neuroscience classroom.
