Explorations in Neuroscience

Piloted in spring 2022 at Spelman College, Explorations in Neuroscience is a new seminar course for freshmen/sophomores designed to "inspire and inform" students about the field of neuroscience. The course is team-taught by Dr. Mark Lee (Spelman College), Dr. Morris Benveniste (Morehouse School of Medicine), and Dr. Tari Tan (Harvard Medical School) and features case studies in sensory neurobiology to showcase exciting topics in neuroscience research and to connect neuroscience to students' lives. It is a great introductory course for students who might be interested in pursuing the BS/MS Program in Neuroscience at Morehouse School of Medicine. The course is tentatively planned to next be offered in Fall 2022 for first-year students across the Atlanta University Center.
