Second year students meet with a faculty mentor for 4-6 weeks of intense discussion of a restricted topic in neuroscience. At the end of this time, each student selects a topic for presentation to the entire Neuroscience Program. The presentation is in the form of a 20-minute lecture. Students receive extensive help from the faculty mentor in preparing their talk, and written and oral feedback from other Program faculty after the talk. This course gives our students outstanding skills for giving scientific presentations. Second year students present in either Fall or Winter term. Students can enroll for an additional credit by meeting the additional requirement of writing a review paper.
