The objective of this writing intensive course is to develop critical thinking and analytical skills necessary for applying the scientific method in neuroscience. In the course, students will complete readings of primary sources, discuss literature, and participate in activities to strengthen research abilities. This experience will reinforce key methodological and statistical concepts that were taught earlier in the curriculum, while stimulating growth in understanding neuroscience and research processes in general. Students will present reports in writing and in class presentations.
