Neuroscience Boot Camp

Applications are now being accepted for the 2010 Neuroscience Boot Camp at the University of Pennsylvania. We are excited about the second annual boot camp, keeping what worked so well this past summer -- great teachers, a small but very diverse group of students, and a varied set of teaching methods -- and making it even better! Through a combination of lectures, break-out groups, panel discussions and laboratory visits, Boot Camp participants will gain an understanding of the methods of neuroscience and key findings on the cognitive and social-emotional functions of the brain, lifespan development and disorders of brain function. Like last year's faculty, the 2010 Boot Camp faculty consists of leaders in the fields of cognitive and affective neuroscience who are committed to the goal of educating non-neuroscientists.
