What you need to do:
PARTICIPATE – sign up for paper presentations
and read all assigned papers and come ready to
discuss/question papers.
In small groups (1-3 people depending on class
size) write a brief proposal to use biophysical or
physiological methods to address an important
(or interesting) question in neuroscience (see
handout for details).
