Best Practices for a Healthy Brain!
It is SO important that we as scientists communicate our knowledge to the public in a way that they can understand. Through this project the student could do just that! They could summarize research on ways to promote brain health, and present the findings through a medium of their choice (blog post, paper, podcast episode, youtube video).
Building Resilience through Science!
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) are scientifically supported ways to build resilience and cope with the difficult things life is bound to throw at us from time to time. However, most people don't learn skills from these treatments unless they attend therapy which can be very expensive. In this project, the student could research these treatment approaches and communicate them to the public through a medium of their choice (blog post, paper, podcast episode, youtube video).
