18 NBB courses (60 hours)
- Required NBB courses:
I will learn about evolutionary mechanisms, adaptation, phylogenetic constraints, neural and neuroendocrine mechanisms of behavior, life history theory, developmental programs, principles of allometry, sexual selection and alternative reproductive strategies and more.
Introduction to Neurobiology:
The first part of this course will focus on the electrophysiological properties of neurons, a crucial first step for understanding brain function. I will learn the generation and propagation of action potentials, neurotransmitter release, and how ion channels and receptors determine the membrane potential and ultimately whether or not the action potential is passed to the next neuron and more.
I will learn to present an integrated coverage of work at the intersection of animal behavior, evolution, and cellular/systems neuroscience. The course surveys the major areas of behavioral neuroscience.
Topics in Neuro and Behavior:
I will learn and use primary literature to examine current issues, trends, and controversies in the field of Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology.

2. Some obstacles that could possibly make it difficult for me to attend Emory relate to finances, current GPA, writing an amazing essay, and the college interview. I think that my GPA of 3.7(freshman and sophomore) will hinder me from getting into Emory because the average GPA is 3.75. This worries me because I don't know how much it will affect my application. I think that the tuition and cost of living at Emory might be obstacles for me because it is extremely high. Also, the whole scholarship process is confusing and not as explained.
3. After doing all of this research, I am extremely more interested in attending Emory University. I am more interested in going to Emory because of all of the available learning opportunities like internships, study abroad trips, available majors, and more. I am also more interested in going to Emory because of their various and multiple offers of financial aid which settles my mind a little on the high tuition. I am glad that I know all of the educational requirements to get into Emory in high school so I can meet them. This research project benefited because it gave me more information on Emory which overall makes me want to go even more.
