Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • cognitive (dis)ability (IQ, Down syndrome, learning disabilities, etc.)
  • cognitive (dys)function (schizophrenia, mood/anxiety disorders, attention deficit disorder, etc.)
  • personality, aggression, drug abuse, etc.
  • neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, etc.)
