Heyman Center Workshops

Neuroscience and History: What do we Want the History of Neuroscience to Do?

Wednesday, September 18, 2013  6:00pm The Heyman Center, Second Floor Common Room

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.
