Annual Summer Workshop in Cognitive and Brain Sciences

Brain Camp gives students intensive introduction to neuroscience

This workshop for undergraduates will be a two-week intensive experience in learning cognitive and brain sciences. Topics covered include optogenetics, multiple methods in brain imaging (with labs), neuropsychology, language, spatial perception, social cognition, replicability, and more. Furthermore, a few students can apply to do research over the entire summer at the University of Delaware. This workshop is free thanks to generous support from the National Science Foundation.
