Did you know that the brain weighs only three pounds, but uses 20% of the oxygen you breathe and is more powerful than any computer on the planet?

This program will cover neurobiology and neurochemistry, focusing on the components of neurons, transmission of signals and impulses, and different types of signaling molecules involved in the nervous system. Additionally, we’ll provide a detailed look at the pathways and components of the visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory, and somatosensory systems, then moving on to higher order processes and functions such as learning and memory, emotion, drugs and addiction, stress, and sleep. 

This is a competitive admissions summer research program designed for teens.

Students will cover the human neural systems, provide a detailed look at the pathways and components of the visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory, and somatosensory systems. 

The program will also cover the higher order processes and functions such as learning and memory, emotion, drugs and addiction, stress and sleep.

Neuroscience is always one of our most popular programs! 

You can either take this program as a standalone, one-week program or combine it with the first week of Biomedical & Surgical Research to create a two-week, competitive admissions program with a surgical spin!

Student Comments

“The neuroscience program covered the basics of brain anatomy, as well as the somatosensory system and neurological disorders. (Our teacher) was engaging and open to answering our questions. I enjoyed our field trips to the Boston Children’s Hospital and the VA Hospital because they gave insight into different neuroscience fields.”

“I enjoyed the field trips and dissections. The teacher was extremely knowledgeable about the field and made an effort to provide students with exposure to real world development in neuroscience.”

“I really enjoyed the program because it helped me to learn about neuroscience. However, more importantly, it was a pleasure to understand that neuroscience is actually something that I would like to devote my life to.”
