Each summer, Penn Neuroscience Boot Camp gives participants a basic foundation in cognitive and affective neuroscience and equips them to be informed consumers of neuroscience research.
Neuroscience is increasingly relevant to a number of professions and academic disciplines beyond its traditional medical applications. Lawyers, educators, economists and businesspeople, as well as scholars of sociology, philosophy, applied ethics and policy, are incorporating the concepts and methods of neuroscience into their work. Indeed, for any field in which it is important to understand, predict or influence human behavior, neuroscience will play an increasing role. The Penn Neuroscience Boot Camp is designed to give participants a basic foundation in cognitive and affective neuroscience and to equip them to be informed consumers of neuroscience research.
The intensive summer institute covering basic neuroscience is geared towards professionals and graduate students in law, ethics, education, business, and other fields. Through a combination of lectures, break-out groups, laboratory visits and more, participants will gain an understanding of the methods of neuroscience and key findings on the cognitive and social-emotional functions of the brain, and disorders of brain function.
The total cost to attend Neuroscience Boot Camp is $4,500.00. This cost includes tuition, housing, breakfast, lunch and three evening receptions. Limited scholarship aid is also available.
