Description:
The Institute on Neuroscience (ION/Teach) is an eight-week summer program, sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and hosted by Georgia State University, Emory University, and the Yerkes National Primate Research Center. The program is seeking high school students who excel in science, as well as for middle and high school teachers.

The program will kick off with a Saturday workshop in May (date to be determined). Then during a 1-week introductory curriculum, ION Scholars (both students and teachers) learn about neuroscience through hands-on activities, discussions and readings directed by faculty members, post-doctoral researchers and undergraduate and graduate students. Scholars may also visit research facilities to learn about various techniques, such as positron emission tomography (PET) scanning or electron microscopy. Special workshops throughout the summer focus on scientific communication, science and society, scientific ethics and special topics in neuroscience. Teachers will devote Friday mornings to lesson plan development, while students focus on scientific writing.

After the introductory curriculum, Student and Teacher Scholars conduct seven-week mentored laboratory research projects at Georgia State University, Emory University, Yerkes, the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), or Morehouse School of Medicine.
