The competitors, local winners from 36 states, competed in four rounds of competition testing their neuroscience expertise. Preparation for the event was intense, with some students reporting upward of 15 hours a week spent studying. The questions are based on information from the Society for Neuroscience Brain Facts book and other free online resources. In addition to receiving a trophy for placing in the top 10, Amaefuna earned a 10-week summer internship with a neuroscientist at Penn State. Congratulations!
