Teaching Neuroscience to Nonscientists: From Botox to Behavior
"From Botox to Behavior" at Emory University is not just a required course for non-neuroscience students. It’s a way to get liberal arts students connected to and excited about the field.
With the class designed to foster discovery and engagement around various content areas, Roesch’s students are empowered to apply their learnings in the real world.
For instance, exposure to basic neuroscience concepts help her students better understand and communicate about neurological diseases they or their loved ones may encounter. They can also see the positive impact of basic science research on society, which means they are potential advocates for greater public support for science.
These benefits, in turn, translate into a positive teaching experience.
