Funding received for BCN Neuroanatomy Trainer (interdisciplinary project)
An interdisciplinary team consisting of Marie-José van Tol (CNC/BSCS), Janniko Georgiadis (Anatomy/BSCS), Jean-Christophe Billiter (GELIFES), Jocelien Olivier (GELIFES), and Hedderik van Rijn (Cognitieve psychologie/BSS) received seed funding (6000 euro) to develop and pilot a Brain Anatomy learning tool to foster learning of brain anatomy of multiple species (human/rodents/drosophilae). The team will use the learning algorithm of SlimStampen that optimizes individual learning of facts based on individual learning performance. With the tool, the team hopes to aid students, PhD-candidates, and researchers of the BCN research school, as well as students from different medical, biological and psychological programs to better memorize and understand brain anatomy.
