Hopkins Spain: Neuroscience in Salamanca

Salamanca - Cathedral - Edo I

This 5-week program, administered by UConn, will introduce students to Neuroscience at an international level. Students will learn about Neuroscience and Spanish culture by becoming immersed in the vibrant life of Salamanca, a university city rich in history and culture. In Summer 2019, the instructor for the Neuroscience course will be Johns Hopkins Medical School's Dr. Amanda Marie Lauer, whose research focuses on the perceptual and central nervous system consequences of hearing loss.


Salamanca, Spain

The program will take place at the University of Salamanca (USAL), founded in 1218. A college town that is both medieval and modern, Salamanca was founded by the Romans in the 4th century, and it teems with cafes, tapas bars, shops, night life, and a rich mix of locals, students, and European tourists.

Courses and Credits

6 JHU credits
Students will take 2 courses for a total of 6 graded credits on this program.

AS.080.362 Neurobiology of Hearing focuses on sound processing, including current research topics in Auditory Neuroscience, including synaptic physiology, neural circuitry, acoustics, physiology, and behavior. Students should have completed an introductory neuroscience course (e.g., Biology of the Brain) or courses in physiological psychology, sensation and perception, or communication science. Some combination of these prerequisites is preferred. This course will count for an upper-level Neuroscience elective.

In Summer 2019 the instructor for this course will be Dr. Amanda Marie Lauer, M.S., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Dr. Lauer's research focuses on the perceptual and central nervous system consequences of hearing loss. 

HA.399.100 Beginner, Intermediate, Medical, or Advanced Scientific Spanish (depending on the student's level). Beginner and intermediate Spanish are for students with no previous Spanish or High School Spanish, respectively. Medical Spanish is for non-native Spanish Speakers. Advanced Scientific Spanish is a Neuroscience special topics course offered for native Spanish speakers. Please note that this course does NOT replace the Medical Spanish course at Hopkins nor will the credits toward a Spanish major or minor at Hopkins.

Both courses will come back with grades that factor into the Hopkins GPA.
