An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a relatively new branch of neuroscience that empowers others to study and analyze the hardware of the brain. Brain cells communicate with each other through electrical impulses, and EEG can be used to help detect any issues that may be associated with this activity. One can take a peek behind the current and uncover neuroscience in a new light.

Junior research student Jaden Wedner and sophomore research student Liam Hill are leading neuroscience research at Walt Whitman High School. Jaden has proposed various EEG based research projects over the past 2 years in his Science Research classes. Jaden has attained a mentorship with Dr. Porubanova, who has a Phd in Psychology at Farmingdale State College. With the gift of more accurate EEG equipment from the Society of Science and the Public, Jaden and Liam can bring their research to the next level. We are grateful that our students will benefit from this generous grant in order to further their research.
