Our perception of the world around us and our behaviors toward it are the results of complex interactions between our brains and the surrounding environment. This program will help students to examine the influence of culture on the relationship between brain and behavior through a variety of activities and experiences as we travel in countries including the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Italy, and Austria. Activities will include didactic instruction, meetings with local experts, visits to sites of local and cultural significance, and cultural experiences.
Another aim of the program is to take advantage of the rich history of psychological and neuroscience research in Europe as well as the current vibrant European research community. This will expose students to different ideas about how to think about the mind (in particular diseases of the mind). It will also help students to broaden their research networks for potential future educational and collaborative research opportunities. The final aim of the program is to improve students’ global fluency and cultural awareness and help students become global learners.
Students from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Financial assistance may be available.
