Brains, Minds & Models
For academic year 2012-13, we will have a series of symposia designed to highlight current excitement about theoretical issues in the neural and cognitive sciences. Theorists interested in the brain and mind come from many different cultures - physics, applied mathematics and computer science, engineering, linguistics, philosophy, ... . We hope that these symposia will provide an opportunity to engage with these diverse approaches, getting a sense both for the broad research programs of different communities and for the technical details on which theories rise and fall.
Symposia will begin at 9:15 AM with bagels and coffee, and wrap up by 6:00 PM. Lunch will be served. All lectures will be in the Science Center, Room 4102 at the Graduate Center. Events are open to the scientific community, but we ask that you email firstname.lastname@example.org to register, so that we can provide the right amount of food and coffee (!).
Some funds are available to facilitate the participation of students and postdoctoral fellows from around the New York metropolitan area. Please email email@example.com if you would like to take advantage of this opportunity.
