Here you can find all of the modules and resources that are part of our MYELIN course. They are completely free to view and use for all teachers and students around the world who want to learn more about Neuroscience in high school. Please note that we are still in the process of editing and reviewing these materials, you can consider this an open beta stage.
Introduces the field of neuroscience as well as basic principles in neuroanatomy and neuronal cell biology
Module 2 explore common methods of experimental neuroscience including experimental design, data processing, model organisms, and common assays/technologies used in the lab.
Module 3 explores the neurobiology of sensory systems within the human body including vision, olfaction, gustation, somatosensation, audition, nociception, and the motor system.
Students will be able to explore how neural circuits give rise to various behaviors and cognitive abilities such as sleep, language, learning, and memory. Students will also be exposed to the field of cognitive neuroscience in this module.
Module 7 explore the impact of neuroscience on society by introducing students to neuroethics and frontiers in neuroscience.
Thank you to all of our MYELIN contributors for their hard work on this project!
