University of Pennsylvania Neuroscience Boot Camp. August 2-12, 2009. A summer institute on neuroscience for graduate students and professionals in law, policy, business, economics, journalism, ethics, education and other fields.
Why Neuroscience Boot Camp?
Neuroscience is increasingly relevant to a number of professions and academic disciplines beyond its traditional medical applications. Lawyers, educators, economists and businesspeople, as well as scholars of sociology, philosophy, applied ethics and policy, are incorporating the concepts and methods of neuroscience into their work. Indeed, for any field in which it is important to understand, predict or influence human behavior, neuroscience will play an increasing role. The Penn Neuroscience Boot Camp is designed to give participants a basic foundation in cognitive and affective neuroscience and to equip them to be informed consumers of neuroscience research.
