    Overview

    Are you an academically advanced high school student looking for a fast-paced college-level learning experience and a chance to engage with like-minded peers? Summer at Hopkins offers an unrivaled opportunity to learn from Hopkins’ world-renowned instructors and connect with academically oriented students from around the globe.

    Consider how behavioral neuroscience can help you understand these curiosities and more: a native Australian man suffers a stroke, recovers, but can only speak Chinese; altering but one neural receptor in the prairie vole will change it from a monogamous to polygamous animal; neurodegenerative disease can cause fits of uncontrollable laughter, despite nothing being funny. Learn how cells and chemicals result in complex behavior and critically examine whether or not the mind is an organic computer in this behavioral neuroscience program.

    Prerequisite: There are no prerequisites for this program.
