Save the dates for the Spring 2017 Allen L. Edwards Public Lecture Series which explores how brain science can improve society. Professors David Gire (March 29), Geoffrey Boynton (April 5), and Katie McLaughlin (April 12), will showcase neuroscientific scholarship that informs topics such as decision making, sensory perception, and childhood adversity. Each speaker has invited a co-presenter whose research complements their scholarship. This year’s guests are: Zach Mainen from the Champalimaud Foundation in Portugal (accompanying Gire), David Eagleman from Stanford’s School of Medicine (accompanying Boynton) and Charles Nelson from Harvard’s Medical School (accompanying McLaughlin). These free talks will be held at 7:30 pm in Kane Hall, and RSVP information will be available early in 2017 on our website.
