What people once thought about how we learn, feel, and develop is now largely influenced by our knowledge of neuroscience. In this LC, we will explore how our biology and brains impact our health, well-being, and contribute to our strengths. Students will connect with IUPUI neuroscientists through talks, lab and clinic tours and with the community through a service-learning project.
