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 2023 program will be led by professors Rachel Branco (Chemistry and Biochemistry) and Nancy Michael (Biology).
In Professor Branco’s course, “Neuropharmacology in Great Britain'', students will learn about the basic tenets 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.
Professor Michael’s course “Sex Differences and the Brain”, will give students an understanding of the sex differences in the brain and behavior and the role that steroid hormones and receptors play in mediating these differences.
Since England has such a rich history of studying the brain, students will take excursions to visit sites associated with the study of the brain and learn from present-day British neuroscientists. Because Neuroscience informs the way people experience the world, students will also take part in a variety of cultural and entertainment events.
