S700: The Seeing Blind: Understanding Vision and Technological Advances in Rainstorm Spring 2021 (May. 15 - 16, 2021)
In this course, we will go over the visual system within our brain, touching on how blindness can arise. The rest of the class will focus on different technologies that have been developed in attempts to help people who are blind better navigate their surroundings. Afterwards, we will brainstorm our own ideas! This is a neuroscience course, so we will be discussing the anatomy of the brain, as well as neuroscience experiments.


S462: Brain Injuries and How They Help Us Understand the Brain in Rainstorm Fall 2020 (Dec. 05 - 06, 2020)
This course will briefly introduce the main lobes of the brain (for some background) before going into different case studies that touch into cognitive neuroscience. The studies that will be discussed will range from accidents leading to complete changes in personality to surgeries that caused amnesia. I will also introduce sources for future reading so that students can continue learning beyond this course. Background knowledge not necessary! Come learn about some really interesting cases that show us how fascinating the brain is!


S194: Brain Injuries and How They Help Us Understand the Brain in Rainstorm Spring 2020 (May. 30 - 31, 2020)
This course will briefly introduce the main lobes of the brain (for some background) before going into different case studies that have advanced neuroscience. The studies that will be discussed will range from people that had a complete change in personality after an accident to someone that became amnesic after surgery. I will also introduce sources for future reading so that students can continue learning beyond this course.
