Neuroscience students at the 2011 Student Symposium
Students of BIOL130 Deadly Shapes, Hostage Brains and BIO346 Molecular Neuroscience collaborated to present research-based exhibits on Medical Mysteries of Brain, Mind, and Behavior at the 2011 Steven Galovich Memorial Student Symposium. Several Biology, Psychology and Neuroscience majors also presented neuroscience-based research at the symposium during its poster session.
Twenty-two third graders from Evelyn Alexander School (North Chicago) visited Lake Forest College for the OUR AMAZING BRAIN outreach on April 25. Students of BIOL130 Deadly Shapes, Hostage Brains became neuroscience teachers for the day and taught the children through hands-on experiences how our brain senses the world, integrates them with past memories, makes decisions, and then plans and executes thoughts and actions. This is the 14th year of this educational outreach by Lake Forest College students outreach that has served more than 500 elementary school children.
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.
