The LIN invites all pupils with a special interest in Neuroscience to apply for a 1-week internship during winter vacation, from February 10 to 14, 2020. The practical course will approach questions like how nerve cells work and how memory functions. The course will be limited to 10 trainees. Applications are open to all school kids who are at least 15 years old at the beginning of the internship. The application deadline is January 20, 2020. If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to Diana Koch koch(at)lin-magdeburg.de.
- How will the internship be organized?
In short lectures and seminars participants will learn more about the contents of the experiments. Supervised by experienced technicians, the trainees can deepen their new knowledge experimentally in the LIN laboratories.
Participants will visit the EEG laboratory and measure brain waves, stain nerve cells and observe them under the microscope, analyse DNA or proteins, observe flies during learning and get to know brain’s networks responsible for memory.
- Who can participate?
All pupils who are at least 15 years old at the beginning of the internship and are interested in learning and memory research can apply.
- Nice to know
We will inform you if you are one of the selected students. The internship is free for you. However, you have to pay for travel costs and catering.
