Encephalon – Neuroscience Thinking Forward

Starts: April 23, 2022 10:00 am EDT
Ends: April 23, 2022 3:30 pm EDT
Location: Schermerhorn Hall, Room 501 1180 Amsterdam Avenue New York, NY 10027

We have invited speakers for three panels to begin the discussions that will be at the forefront of neuroscience in our generation. The subsections are Computation in the Brain & Neurophilosophy, Clinical Psychiatry & Epigenetics, and finally Drugs, Behavior, and the Future of Medicine. This will include talks evaluating the computational properties of the brain, exploring advances towards evidence-based, person-centric psychiatry, and ending on reconfiguring perceptions and preconceptions of illicit drugs.

Breakfast Snacks and Lunch will be provided as well as themed merch for the early-birds (check out the ~awesome~ designs you could flaunt around campus)
