2007 Spring Symposium

"Neuroscience...Crossing Traditional Borders"

Thursday, March 29th, 2007
3:00 pm - 5:30 pm
University Center, Tidewater A

I would like to invite you to attend the Third Annual Neuroscience Spring Symposium. I am pleased to announce that this year's Symposium will be jointly sponsored by the Program in Neuroscience and the Anthropology Department. Yes, the Anthropology Department! Please mark your calendars and reserve the afternoon of Thursday, March 29th, 2007.

The afternoon will focus on the interdisciplinary nature of neuroscience research. Three of our William and Mary Neuroscience Faculty will provide insights into the work they and thier students are doing (3:00 - 3:45pm), which will be followed by the keynote address (4:00 - 5:00pm) with a reception to follow.

Why the unique pairing of disciplines? Well, because they are not so exclusive anymore. Our Keynote Address will be given by Lynne Isbell, who is a faculty member of the Anthropolgy Department at UC-Davis. Her work on the evolution of vision in primates brings together several fields of study in an effort to answer some extraordinary questions about the networking of neural systems (Seeing the Serpent).

Please join me for this afternoon of Neuroscience Evolution. An afternoon that even Christopher Wren would have agreed will be time well spent.

John Griffin
Director, Program in Neuroscience
