Our Mentoring Program

The behavioral neuroscience peer mentoring program brings together upperclassmen and new students, both freshmen and transfers, where mentors can share their words of wisdom pertaining to academics or transition to college life and mentee can seek advise in choosing classes, co-ops/research opportunities, activities on and off campus, etc. We also offer events during the semester to facilitate networking and socializing within the major. The goal of the program is to help new students transition into their first semester in the BNS major through fostering connections between upperclassmen and new students.

Please contact bnsmentorprogram@gmail.com with any questions!

The Forgetting Curve- Kickoff Activity of 2014

the forgetting curve

ATTN MENTORS/MENTEES: Please join us forĀ the mentoring program’s kick-off activity of the year, the play, The Forgetting Curve.

Synopsis:
Desperate to cure his epilepsy, a young man underwent an experimental neurosurgery in 1953 — shockingly, the procedure destroyed his brain’s ability to form new memories. Now known as Patient HM, he became widely studied, and his fascinating case serves as inspiration for The Forgetting Curve, a new play told in a non-linear style through the lens of fictional neuroscientist, Dr. Laura Nebbens. She has studied HM for several decades, and on the eve of accepting a prestigious award, struggles to reconcile all she has sacrificed to leave the legacy of her life’s work. Both she and HM have made significant contributions to the scientific community, and the human race — but at what cost?

When: Sept. 14th at 2 pm

Where: Boston Center for the ArtsĀ , Stanford Calderwood Pavilion, 527 Tremont StĀ , Boston, MA 02116

Cost: $5

Come after the Mentor/ Mentee Meet and Greet on Sunday for a fun first event with your fellow BNS students!
