How Jellybeans Can Reveal Neuroscience to the Public


IGERT Associate Alexis Webb and 7 other graduate students worked together with the St. Louis Science Center to create a program to train neuroscientists to communicate their science with the general public.

Article excerpt:
“Studying brain science in the 21st century requires crossing traditional boundaries, and with that comes the need for an interdisciplinary approach.

The fields of psychology, neurobiology and biomedical engineering all approach research questions from different perspectives, each with a unique way of trying to understand how the brain works. Neuroscientists of the future should be able to integrate these differences to build new and better solutions."
