The Neural Systems and Behavior Course in Woods Hole

The Neural Systems and Behavior (NS&B) Course is the premier discovery-driven training opportunity for the next generation of neuroethologists and systems neuroscientists. It is an 8 week intensive lecture and laboratory course held at the Marine Biological Lab in Woods Hole, MA, every summer.

Course Date: May 23 - June 26, 2021
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 class of students are automatically accepted into the class of 2021 and we are not taking applications at this time. Applications for NS&B 2022 will open in late 2021.
