    Overview

    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! 

    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.
