MIT model explains how the brain can learn novel tasks while still remembering what it has already learned.
MIT will benefit from an agreement with American Airlines that will result in discounted plane tickets for Institute-related business trips.
The agreement between American Airlines and the Medical Academic Scientific Community Organization, a consortium including major Boston hospitals, Harvard University and MIT, is effective immediately and runs until Sept. 30, 2000. It provides for a significant discount on domestic travel to and from all states except Alaska, as well as Puerto Rico, and a slightly smaller reduction in fares from the contiguous 48 states to Europe and the Pacific.
The discounted airfares are available only when using American Express Travel (x3-7961) or Omni Travel (x3-9405). Those with questions may call the agencies directly.
