Boot Camp Without Pushups or Drill Sergeants

By Jim Virtel

The University of Pennsylvania is holding its second Neuroethics Boot Camp from August 1 – 11, 2010.  All interested graduate students, professional students, university faculty, and working professionals are encouraged to apply regardless of science background.   Applications are due February 1, 2010.  Here’s more information from Kezia Kamenetz at Penn’s Center for Neuroscience and Society:

“Through a combination of lectures, break-out
groups, panel discussions and laboratory visits, Boot Camp participants
will gain an understanding of the methods of neuroscience and key
findings on the cognitive and social-emotional functions of the brain,
lifespan development and disorders of brain function.  Like last year’s
faculty, the 2010 Boot Camp faculty consists of leaders in the fields
of cognitive and affective neuroscience who are committed to the goal
of educating non-neuroscientists.
