Wednesday, April 26, One class:  1:45pm – 3:15pm

We’ll introduce volunteers, who will briefly describe their studies and research, how they got where they are now, and where they’d like to be going.  We’ll ask students what questions they have, and what they already know about the brain and behavior.  On Tuesday we’ll hear from Wenzl McGowen of the band Moon Hooch, listen to great music and talk about music and the brain… On Wednesday we’ll enjoy an art project  –  details coming from Jeff Leake…

We’ll also introduce human and animal brains for students to examine up close, hold, and contemplate  –  and we’ll answer the many questions typically prompted by this experience…

Come join us!  High school students studying Psychology in Portland Public Schools would LOVE to hear about your education and research interests, and discover what you’re learning about behavior and the brain..!

Please RSVP to:  griesar@pdx.edu and aspragus@yahoo.com
