Please read about our nine classes taught by UChicago students. We are offering one section of each class. Feel free to email the teachers if you have any questions!
Social Sciences and History
Anyone who is interested is welcome to join! However, I recommend students have some familiarity with the show before the first class.
Health and Medicine
some biology background (can be middle-school biology)
In this course, we'll take a dive into memories through a neuroscientific perspective. We'll start with nervous system basics, explore different types of memory, and finally ask what can cause memories to malfunction (with a focus on neurodegenerative diseases), and discuss what solutions modern medicine has to alleviate these problems.
Some cell biology preferred, but not required
