Sponsored by The Center for Behavioral Neuroscience The Neuroscience School at Georgia State University (GSU) is a summer program that offers short courses for high school students who enjoy science. These engaging courses are taught by award-winning neuroscience and psychology professors, all of whom hold interest and scholarly expertise in science education research and programming. 

Most high school curricula offer minimal introductions to neuroscience (a dabble here and there in biology and psychology classes). For those students lucky enough to have their imaginations captured by their introduction to neuroscience in their high school classes, we are here to help them stretch that imagination further. Join us to learn all you can about the structure and function of the nervous system. Curious about core competency expected from a college program in neuroscience? We can help you get there. (Explore the Society for Neuroscience’s Core Competencies in Neuroscience Training at Every Stage). Want to spend summer hours with other students who share similar interests? We offer that time and space for such connections. Care to understand your self and your world in a new light? Join us to explore the intricacies of neuroscience.

“I love neuroscience because of its universality. Because it can be studied and tested and corrected—an ever-expanding, ever-improving existential philosophy. It is as much a tool to diagnose and treat as to tolerate and love.” Barron, Daniel. (2016, November 16. How Studying Neuroscience Transformed My Brain. Scientific American.)
