Neuroscience is the exciting exploration of the biological underpinnings of all human behavior and is an increasingly popular and important field of study. Students will develop a nuanced understanding of both the anatomy and physiology of the brain, and will investigate the biological roots and impact of such phenomena as sleep, stress, and bias. Students will have the opportunity to complete an independent investigation into a social issue and propose a response through the lens of their understanding of neuroscience.
How does our brain govern our behavior?
How does our biology affect our experiences in the world?
How does understanding our brain help us to create social change?
