Craig Roberts, Duke Institute for Brain Sciences
Dr. Roberts and other scientists will create 2D and 3D movies of scientists’ performing and explaining advanced neuroscience techniques. These movies will be used in Neuroscience Methods (NEUROSCI 184, Spring 2011) to complement discussion with a scientist who practices the technique (and has produced the video), bringing the laboratory experience into the classroom. This project will enable students to view virtual experiments in 2D or 3D, and will compare student engagement and learning using the two types of visualization.
Start date: September 2010
Funding awarded: $300 and loan of 3 3D Camcorders
Update: Dr. Roberts presented the results from this research project at the 2011 Society for Neuroscience conference in November 2011.
