Introduction to Neuroscience

How does the brain control movement?

Burke Neurological Institute is excited to offer the Introduction to Neuroscience this Fall 2021 in a hybrid format. High school students may attended classes either in-person or remotely by online webinars.

A Course for High School Students

The Introduction to Neuroscience course is an ideal introduction to neuroscience for highly motivated high school students interested in advancing their knowledge and understanding of the mammalian nervous system. This twice weekly evening online course will provide a foundation to the study of the mammalian nervous system, with an emphasis on the structure and function of the systems that control movement, sensory processing, and learning and memory. Moreover, we believe that this course can provide a unique gateway into potential research opportunities both at Burke Neurological Institute and other institutions, and has the potential to improve a student’s preparation for college-level science curriculum.
