Undergraduate Workshop in Cognitive and Brain Sciences, UD, Summer 2017

University of Delaware Undergraduate Workshop in Cognitive and Brain Sciences

Are you interested in learning more about cognitive and brain sciences?  If so, the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Delaware is holding its 1st Annual Summer Workshop in Cognitive and Brain Sciences.  This program, from June 5th-16th, 2017, is an intensive workshop for undergraduates who are interested in cognitive research.  Participants will receive immersive training in cognitive and brain sciences, including both formal coursework, interactive teaching, and hands-on experience with functional neuroimaging, non-invasive brain stimulation, cognitive neuropsychological research, and more.

Thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation, participant expenses involving travel, tuition, room and board will be covered for the entire two-week program.  Furthermore, selected workshop attendees will have the opportunity to engage in cognitive neuroscience research over the entire summer at the University of Delaware.  Those students will be provided with a stipend, in addition to workshop expenses.

We encourage all undergraduates with a strong interest in the cognitive and brain sciences to apply.   We also encourage students from underrepresented backgrounds to apply. Applications are due March 1st.  For more information, please go to https:/www.psych.udel.edu/brainworkshop.  If you have any questions, please contact the workshop organizers (Drs. Jared Medina & Anna Papafragou) at brainworkshop@psych.udel.edu.
