Brain Power: Investigative Neuroscience, Balboa, 12-14

The brain is the most complex system known to man. It gives us calm focus or moves us from laughter to tears in a fraction of a second. For some of us, it’s easy to learn new things and for some it’s not. What’s going on up there? Come explore all these questions and many others using real world  [Logic] research! Based on a college course taught by Professor Davidesco, this camp will use all the interesting parts of the course, leaving out the boring ones. We will start by asking research questions and designing experiments. Students will don EEG caps, collect data, analyze it using basic functions in the MATLAB, and then draw conclusions. Putting our new understanding to good use, we will play computer games that help our brain grow!

Led by Ido Davidesco, Ph.D., a postdoctoral research fellow at Princeton and New York Universities. His research focuses on how children learn in the classroom. Dr. Davidesco currently teaches youth at the New York Academy of Science and at Yeshiva University. He holds a Ph.D. in computational neuroscience from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
