This course provided me with an exciting overview of what is going on in Neuroscience. We had a wonderful opportunity to conduct research in the lab of our choice. We were also able to attend a conference in Geneva, networking with many researchers from different countries. The result of my work was published in European Psychiatry. I enjoyed this course and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in Neuroscience." -
