Center for Behavioral Neuroscience (Image 2) Brain Camp is a summer education program for middle school students to learn about the brain through fun, hands-on activities led by real neuroscientists. The camp is sponsored by the Atlanta Center for Behavioral Neuroscience (CBN), a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center. The curriculum, which is tied to the new Georgia Performance Standards for seventh-grade life science, consists of a series of activities including dissections of sheep brains and cow eyes; experiments on the sensory systems; lessons on neuroanatomy, memory, and how nutrition affects the nervous system; brain art and building "beady" neurons. The Center for Behavioral Neuroscience - a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center - is a consortium of seven metro Atlanta colleges and universities, including Georgia State University, Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Spelman College. The CBN consists of interdisciplinary programs integrating research, education and knowledge transfer. More than 100 neuroscientists lead the CBN research program, along with a cadre of more than 50 graduate students and 25 postdoctoral students, to study the basic neurobiology of social behaviors. CBN also directs a comprehensive education program designed to prepare the next generation of neuroscientists and improve science literacy in our community.
