“….a chance for individuals
without a neuroscience background to quickly gain a working knowledge of [neuroscience]”
….thought I might have something of interest to
your readers, especially those who were trained in robotics. This summer,
Penn is hosting our second Neuroscience Boot Camp, a chance for individuals
without a neuroscience background to quickly gain a working knowledge of the
subject. The program is specifically targeted so that participants can
apply this information to other fields. You’ll find the full information
below. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Applications are now being accepted for the 2010 Neuroscience Boot Camp at
the University of Pennsylvania. We are excited about the second annual boot
camp, keeping what worked so well this past summer — great teachers, a
small but very diverse group of students, and a varied set of teaching
methods — and making it even better!
Through a combination of lectures, break-out groups, panel discussions and
laboratory visits, Boot Camp participants will gain an understanding of the
methods of neuroscience and key findings on the cognitive and
social-emotional functions of the brain, lifespan development and disorders
of brain function. Like last year’s faculty, the 2010 Boot Camp faculty
consists of leaders in the fields of cognitive and affective neuroscience
who are committed to the goal of educating non-neuroscientists.
