Recent years have seen significant advances in neuroscience and its associated clinical disciplines. In particular, cross-fertilization of ideas and data among previously distinct areas of brain-related investigation has lead to the emergence of a synergistic and increasingly integrative approach to mind and brain, under the umbrella of the cognitive/affective neurosciences.
The Center for Brain/Mind Medicine Seminar Series presents topics that transcend or lie at the borders of traditional brain-based disciplines, and/or are of interest to professionals from multiple brain/mind related fields. Speakers are recruited from a variety of disciplines in order to present diverse perspectives on brain/mind function.
Seminars take place on the first Monday of the month at noon, fall through spring, in the Carrie Hall Conference Room at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (see below for directions). A buffet lunch is provided. The seminars offer continuing education credits to both physicians and psychologists, as described below.
