Neuroscience Course-international Exposure Program, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, Il, USA 2017 Overall, the Neuroscience course was highly informational and learning about how the brain works in the routine and for people with disabilities was very fascinating. It has given us rst-hand experience of gaining an understanding of the anatomy and the functions of Central Nervous System and the concepts of Neuroscience and how it exists as an approach separate from both psychology and biology. Thus this course introduced us, to the basics of Behavioural Neuroscience in a way that focused on the foundational topics in the eld-with a generous sprinkling of the newest and the most fascinating discoveries-leaving us with an appetite or more! - Simran Bhatia & Hrutvija Trivedi (SLS 14) 12
