Today, our neuropsychology & medicine students teamed up to head over to the Warren Anatomical Museum on Harvard Medical School’s campus in Longwood Medical Area. Longwood is a really exciting area of Boston for those interested in medicine or related fields in the sciences – it’s home to some of the best hospitals in the world, many connected by innovative bridges to allow for collaboration, research, and patient care across institutions. The main attraction of this field trip was getting to see Phineas Gage’s skull! Students were also able to see a bit of the area and Harvard Med School’s campus.
