This class is designed to serve as a first dive into neuroscience. We will investigate neuron structure and function, and then look at how neurons connect to each other via synapses. We will expand the scale to consider the brain, the senses, and finally learning and memory. Class activities will include interactive neurophysiology simulations, optical illusions, and memory tests. Students will build neurons and synapses, and do research and present on neurophysiological disorders.

Scheduled Class Time*
*The course will meet for two hours daily (Monday–Friday) for a live class during this window of time. The exact time will be set closer to the program start. In addition to the live meeting times, students will engage in out-of-class learning assignments such as assigned readings, group work, pre-recorded online lectures, and more.
Completion of one year of high school biology.
