Have you ever wondered how the brain controls human behaviour? how memories are formed and how memory loss occurs in dementia? How do painkillers (e.g., paracetamol) know where the pain is in your body? Have you ever wondered how drugs are discovered and tested for safety before they reach the market? Are you interested in becoming a neuroscientist and exploring the brain? Are you interested in drug discovery? Beautiful Mind (Aspiring Neuroscientists) is a research-based enrichment program at Alfaisal University. It is an excellent opportunity for students interested in learning about the function and diseases of the brain. Moreover, the program is suitable for students curious about scientific research.
The students will learn about dementia, addiction, depression, and anxiety. The program provides hands-on practical experience in the lab, interactive lectures, quizzes, and workshops. Moreover, the students will develop skills in designing experiments, learning laboratory techniques, and testing within the neuroscience field.

In addition, the students will choose a scientific topic to discuss and debate at the end of the program.
