About This Activity

Neuroscience attempts to study the development, function and organization of the brain, as well as how these components form the mind. To do this, modern neuroscience combines the efforts of multiple fields to answer many of the most profound questions regarding thought, perception and consciousness. In this course, students will learn the basics of how to design and conduct experiments using several neuroscience techniques. In particular, we will explore the neuroscience techniques of tissue staining, behavioral testing and electrophysiology. Students will construct their own electrophysiological equipment, with which they will conduct a series of experiments using various animal models. Additionally, students will design and build behavioral apparatus in order to test how planaria perceive and react to the world around them. We will also collaborate with neuroscience labs at duke to learn techniques related to image analysis and quantification. The primary goal of this course is to get students experience in the field of neuroscience research through hands-on activities. Students will design and perform experiments from start to finish. This includes presenting their results in both oral and written formats.
