Hunter Students attend MIT's Quantitative Methods Workshop

Six Hunter students spent an inspiring week at MIT's Quantitative Methods Workshop learning about computational cognitive neuroscience. MIT's seven-day intensive workshop, offered to distinguished undergraduates from outside of MIT, is "designed to introduce students to quantitative tools and programming languages used to analyze experimental data in biology and neuroscience." Students are introduced to languages like MATLAB and Python, and to sophisticated experimental tools like fMRI, MEG, and Calcium imaging.
