Details

For this year's first fall meeting we would like to meet with all those who have expertise or just an interest in neuroscience. Not only does this include neuroscientists (students, researchers, academics, etc) but attorneys, medical professionals, philosophers, educators, politicians, mental health professionals, and any others who find this topic fascinating. Did you know, for instance, that just this October in Boston the fifth annual international conference on Neuroleadership will be held. It will have presentations by over 75(about) professionals, including faculty from MIT, Harvard, BU etc. A few weeks later will be the 10th(I think) conference on "Learning and the Brain." Neurophilosophy is a recognized division of philosophy. THis all says that neuroscience is relevant and present. This meeting will be a general one, painting a broad stroke in order to find the interests of the group. This could also include a discussion of a number of topics, e.g. very specific neuroscience topics that reflect your own neuroscientific reserarch areas; law, e.g. What is or will be neurophysiologically based "insanity; can we or will we be able to type a child through brain scans, computational neuroscience, the interface of silicon and carbon-based "life forms,"......whatever. The date, time, even place, of each meeting can be adjusted as we all settle in to our Fall schedules but the first meeting is set at this time.
