Faced with scattered reports of a zombie apocalypse, Upper School students in psychology class gathered and presented research on the effects the mysterious infection has on the human nervous system, the endocrine system, and the brain.

Students sought to answer:

– What areas of the body (nervous, endocrine, and brain) does the zombie virus affect?
– How do the diseased areas of the brain influence the behavior of infected individuals?
– What instruments would you use to diagnose the infected areas of the brain?
– How can we treat the zombies?

Psychology is an Upper School elective course that introduces students to the study of individual human behavior and experience, focusing on the physiological, cognitive, behavioral, and affective domains of psychology.
