S432: Sheep Brain Dissection in Splash Fall 2016 (Nov. 05, 2016)
In this class you will learn a bit about neuroscience and brain anatomy by dissecting a sheep brain! Please wear clothing that you don't care about as you may get a bit dirty. We will supply gloves, dissection kits and the brains!

S255: Learning is Life in Splash Spring 2015 (Apr. 18, 2015)
This is a neuroscience based course which will explain learning as a biological phenomenon. There will be technical parts for those with more advanced backgrounds in biology, such as sensitization, habituation and long-term potentiation, which serve as simple examples of how learning works on a cellular level. But there will also be points accessible to people with no background at all. These will include optical illusions, and descriptions of studies including the HM case of a man without memory. Each concept will be explained in increasing levels of detail, so anyone with an interest in learning, neuroscience and the mind is welcome to join regardless of their background.
