Meeting date

This will be our first meeting of the school year.  The discussions can go in any direction, but all are related to implications, conjectures, concerns, issues, hypotheses, etc related to the implications of what we are discovering about neuroscience. At least one professor form MIT will be amongst us as well as other scholars in the fields of neuroscience, clinical psychology and education. There are usually about 10-15 people, and this in informal and thought provoking. Topics in the past have included such things as the neuroscience of learning styles, ADHD, autism, aging, intelligence, etc.  There is no limit of subject choices.  It often evolves as we talk.  We can discuss anyone's research as well. As a starter, this meeting will start with the subject of evolutionary neuroscience. Why?  One professor who will be there, Gerald Schneider, is one of the leading experts in the world on this subject. Nevertheless, this is not a lecture. This is a stimulating, thought provoking, participatory get together. Are these subjects important?  Did you know that for the past 6 years there has been an international conference on the subject of neuroscience and political leadership!  It was held in Boston in 2010. We will meet at the 43 Vassar Street entrance to the McGovern Institute for Brain Science that is across from the Stata Center.  We will then go to either to the Stata Center or a block or two away to a pub. Call[masked] if you have any questions. David
