Amazing Brain Outreach
Dr. Shubhik DebBurman’s first-year studies students taught elementary students about the human brain in place of their final exam. They created interactive lesson plans that helped the kids learn more about how the brain functions.
First-year students took their turn as teachers when a Lake Forest Country Day School class visited campus. They taught them interactive lessons about the important role their brains play when it comes to sensing the complex world around us, to use our memory, planning, and attention to make decisions, and to execute them into thoughts and movements.
Enjoy these photos from the 2015 Robert B. Glassman Memorial Brain, Mind & Behavior Symposium. 50 students and alumni presented posters and five faculty and alumni presented interdisciplinary talks on November 12. Over 200 community member and public attended the symposium.
Students in the first-year studies class Medical Mysteries of the Mind recently traveled to Northwestern Medical School’s Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease Center, where they learned about human brain pathology at the school’s Brain Bank and discussed the molecular events with scientists in the Neuroscience Graduate Program.
