The Evolutionary Development of the Neocortex and its Implications for Evolutionary Cognition

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it is understandable for one to overlook the privileged cognitive abilities that he or she bears as a human being in comparison to other species.  In particular, humans, as mammals and apes, are seen as cognitively more advanced than other life forms, such as reptiles, mollusks, and microbes because they can process the greatest amount of information of their social and physical surroundings.

HHMI Science Education Program at Bryn Mawr College 2008-2012

Who We Are

As a liberal arts college for women, Bryn Mawr College is committed to:

  • encouraging large numbers of young women to major in disciplines in which they have been traditionally underrepresented and to pursue graduate study and careers in the sciences, and
  • ensuring science literacy among all students.

Our past grants from HHMI have helped us to strengthen science education by supporting interdisciplinary approaches to teaching in biology and the related sciences; undergraduate research opportunities; use of computing technologies in the sciences; and professional development for precollege science teachers.
