Introduction to Neuroscience

How does the brain control movement?

Please note that Burke Neurological Institute is excited to be continuing lessons to high school students for the Introduction to Neuroscience via online webinars.

A Course for High School Students

Beginning in February 2020, the Burke Neurological Institute, in White Plains, is offering an Introduction to Neuroscience course for interested local High School students. We envision this course as an ideal introduction to neuroscience for highly motivated students interested in advancing their knowledge and understanding of the mammalian nervous system. This twice weekly evening 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.
