Pre-Psychology: Psychology & Neuroscience
Exploring Behavior and Memory
Ever get a feeling of Déjà vu? What happens when we confront something new? How do we tell if we’ve seen something before? In this 1-week introduction to the field of Behavioral Neuroscience, you will learn that what we think, see, hear, and remember can have little to do with the physical reality. You will be guided through fascinating human and animal research including the responses of individual brain cells to changes in the world around us.
Students will be exposed to:
- Lively discussion
- Video clips
- In-class activities
- A visit to a Brain Research laboratory in order to come away with a better understanding of how our brains process information about the world.
This program is excellent for students interested in Psychology, Cognitive Sciences, and Medicine (especially Neurology).
