James E. Olson, Ph.D., professor of emergency medicine, and neuroscience, cell biology, and physiology, was invited by the Society for Neuroscience to develop and present a workshop on neuroscience education for grades 6 through college at the National Science Teachers Association National Conference on Science Education to be held in Boston.

Olson is teaming up with Rochelle D. Schwartz-Bloom from the Duke University Institute for Brain Sciences to demonstrate examples of how the Next Generation Science Standards can be incorporated into two classroom activities focusing on neuroscience.

Olson will be describing brain mapping—how human sensory systems are represented in an orderly fashion in the brain. The workshop, “Neuroscience as a STEM Subject,” will be on April 4.
