Neuroscience and History: Neurophysiology between Experiment & Therapeutics

Wednesday, October 16, 2013  6:00pm The Heyman Center, Second Floor Common Room


Heyman Center for the Humanities

The Neuroscience and History Working Group talks foster interdisciplinary conversation about the promises and challenges of contemporary neuroscience. We will explore the historical conditions for the emergence of neuroscience as a discipline, as well as the synergies and tensions between historical and neuroscientific modes of explanation. We welcome scholars, clinicians, students, and the interested public.

ID is required for entrance. 

Attendance to the workshop is by invitation only.
