IAP 2004 Activity

Multi-Disciplinary Approaches to Neurobiology at MIT: Pathfinding into the Next Decade
Prof. J. Troy Littleton
No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)
Prereq: none

This series of discussions will highlight neurobiology research and future directions for the field. MIT has made a recent commitment to promote the development of neurosciences, with the formation of the McGovern Institute for Brain Research and the Picower Center for Learning and Memory, together with the construction of a new building to house the neuroscience community. Find out what the excitement is about and gain exposure to where neurobiology is at MIT, where it originated and where it is going in the next decade. For a more detailed description about each of the talks, please see
