NEU/BIO 675: Biodiversity, Brains, and Behavior
January 19, 2020
Today we spent the day at Hotel Telamar in Tela, Honduras. The students had the day to ourselves to do whatever we wanted, so most of us took a nap, swam in the pool, played volleyball, went golfing, or explored the surrounding city of Tela. The weather was warm and clear almost the entire day which was perfect for spending time outdoors, relaxing after our busy week of diving at CoCo View, although I dearly miss CoCo View and can’t wait to go back someday. I hope to continue to stay in touch with them until then.
Later in the evening, my roommate and I invited some of our fellow students to our hotel room for a night of watching a movie and doing face masks (which everyone participated in, including the boys). All in all, it was a day of some much-needed laziness and bonding with one another.

In this course, students will be able to study the diverse ecology of a Caribbean coral reef, while learning about the evolution of neurobiology of marine life to humans. Students will have the opportunity to be scuba-certified before diving in to explore the tropical reefs. They will get first hand experience of what Honduran culture is like during their stay, explore the Copan ruins, an archaeological site of the Maya civilizations, and visit the island of Roatan.
