I am in third year of University Physics, and I have been particularly interested in models of cognition for two years. I was studying and working as an assistant of an eminence in the area during the last 6 months, who, after seeing I was so interested (I was the only student interested), 'took me under his wing'. I have learned a lot with him and this year I was ready to start something bigger. Anyway, my director was choosed as a professor in a subject I am interested. Obviously, I started his course as a student (although I suggested to be an assistant, and he rejected it, he choosed one of him collegues). After some weeks, he started treating me as any other student, no more meetings with other great scientists, no more seminars, no more cool projects or challenges; and definetly nothing of that 'something bigger' I was waiting for. I have asked him about new projects in his lab, and everytime he have said 'we can discuss this in class'. I thought of dropping out of his class (since I have enough knowledge to be teaching it) , and I have discussed this with him too, but I am not sure that is a good idea. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!!
