Des Moines University faculty and staff.
Des Moines University has been working in collaboration with Des Moines Public Schools Central Campus in which educators have constructed a Research Orientation Module in Comparative Neuroanatomy that familiarizes high school students (Grades 11-12) with evolutionary neuroscience and some of the research methods employed in mapping the human brain. Through the use of a mixed instructional approach, this intervention has allowed students to learn science outside of the traditional classroom setting and to apply this knowledge by collaborating on a research project pertaining to the mammalian brain.
