The Neuroscience Seminar Journal Club:
For students (required) led by a faculty facilitator. This one credit hour course meets biweekly throughout the academic year and is offered to neuroscience students from all disciplines. The course alternates between student presentations and discussion one week and the scheduled Neuroscience Seminar the next week. Students present a review/critique of a published manuscript from the upcoming speaker’s current research. The host faculty for the seminar speaker facilitates the discussion. Grades are based upon seminar attendance, discussion participation and their presentations. The combination of presentation and discussion prior to the speaker’s visit has proven a very effective tool to increase student participation and enhance their interactions during the seminar and student-speaker lunches.
