Students will explore parts of the brain and their functions through lectures, dissection, and study of models. Case studies are used to bring the material to life as real-life stories illustrate the effects on behavior and sensory perception of individuals with missing or destroyed brain regions, such as injury or Alzheimer’s and other neurological disorders. Neuroimaging techniques from EEG to FMRI and PET/SPECT are covered that provide a window into the brain enabling physicians and scientists to visualize brain activity and track states of consciousness.

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