This London-based, 6-week, 6-credit, faculty-led summer program will connect Notre Dame Neuroscience and Behavior students with the history and research of neuroscience in England. The 2018 program will be led by Professor Rachel Branco (Chemistry and Biochemistry) along with Professor Emanuele Ratti (Philosophy, Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values). In Professor Branco’s course, “Neuropharmacology in Great Britain”, you will learn about the basic tenants of pharmacology and classes of drugs that affect the brain, with particular emphasis on drugs that have been important in Great Britain’s culture and history. In Professor Ratti’s course “Emerging Topics in Biomedical Ethics”, you will discuss ongoing debates in modern neuroethics that are directly relevant to our understanding and treatment of the human health. England has a rich history of studying the brain. We will take excursions to visit sites associated with the study of the brain and historical issues in bioethics. Since Neuroscience informs the way we experience all the world, we will also take part in a variety of cultural and entertainment events.
