Neuroscience involves the study of the brain and nervous system, providing interested students with the tools to explore multifaceted aspects of the workings of the brain.  Through a neuroscience mentorship, students will gain skills necessary to understand sensory, motor, and cognitive processes, and how they are affected by various experiences.  Neuroscience projects have involved writing research papers and conducting literature reviews in areas related to how various factors interact with the human brain.
