Michele Saul: Learning and Teaching Neuroanatomy
Since the time of the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, scientists have worked to understand how the brain's structure dictates its many functions. The University of Rochester has rich history of neuroanatomy teaching expertise, beginning with the basics of human brain dissection. Following in this tradition, and learning by doing, graduate student Michele Saul is beginning a teaching apprenticeship this summer under Martha Johnson Gdowski, Ph.D.
