NS 408 - Independent Research: Honors in Neuroscience

Eligible students will be active participants in a year-long intensive laboratory experience (NS-406 & NS-408) that involves conducting a literature review, generating hypothesis(es), choosing and training on relevant methodology, writing an approved IRB/IACUC proposal (if applicable), collecting data, analyzing results, and writing a thesis paper, which also includes theoretical implications and conclusions.  Students will also present their work orally at the April college-wide symposium.

BI 320 Advanced Neurobiology or BI 335 Neuroscience may also be required for cellular neuroscience related projects.  PH 362 may be required for philosophy related projects.  Students should speak with a faculty mentor to inquire whether these additional prerequisites are needed.
