Students are expected to submit a Term Plan one month after the first day of classes and a Progress Report two weeks before the last day of classes.
This course provides opportunities for first and second year students who have not yet declared a major to engage in supervised research activities.
An original experimental project is undertaken in which each student is responsible for the design and operation of the experiment under the direction of a Neuroscience Graduate Program faculty member. Prerequisite: Major in Neuroscience.
A two-semester course in which the student prepares a thesis under the supervision of a Neuroscience Graduate Program faculty member. The thesis must be based on empirical research conducted by the student. Prerequisite: Participant in Neuroscience DMP.
Students give forty-five minute presentations to their peers each week. Provides a chance for practice and improvement in giving lectures and an opportunity to receive advice from fellow trainees and attending faculty.
