Presentation Title

Exploring Medical Mysteries of the Human Brain

Location

Johnson 215

Abstract

Biology 130 and 346 students invite members of the college community to discover fascinating aspects of the function and dysfunction of our human nervous system. Biology 346 mentors and Biology 130 mentees collaborated in small groups to create multimedia exhibits that extend textbook knowledge to cutting edge biomedical mysteries by integrating research poster presentations with human brain anatomy, physical models, hands on activities, and cellular microscopy. The Biology 130 exhibits focus on three neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson’s Disease, Frontotemporal dementias, and Huntington disease), while the Biology 346 exhibits focus on plasticity and addiction, sex/sexuality, sleep/wakefulness, emotion, and learning/memory.
