Upcoming Event: Boston, 04 November 2005

On the 4th of November, the opening of the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology takes place. A day-long celebration is scheduled.

According to the website:
"The McGovern Institute is conducting interdisciplinary research that combines and extends the results of recent breakthroughs in three major, interrelated areas: systems and computational neuroscience, imaging and cognitive neuroscience, and genetic and cellular neuroscience. Fundamental studies in genetics and cell biology, live measurement of brain physiology in humans and other animals performing cognitive tasks, and modeling of brain function using advanced tools in biocomputation and cognitive sciences -- such research will lay a foundation for a comprehensive description of the brain, including how it learns and communicates.
