The last five years have been full of exciting news for neuroscientists. With the introduction of non-invasive neuroimaging, research on social environment stimulation and social status has moved from animal models to human neuroscience. With this in mind, how can neuroscience help provide solutions to some societal issues?
Join Amedeo D’Angiulli, associate professor in the Department of Neuroscience, as he outlines an emerging agenda for neuroscience for the next decade. He will demonstrate that we need less sensational focus on mind-reading in neuroimaging and more dialogue around the neuroscientific rationales for interventions targeting children and families.
Where: Wild Oat Café at 817 Bank Street.
When: Wednesday, Sept. 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The free 20-minute discussion will be followed by a question and answer session. The Science Café series takes place every second Wednesday until Dec. 5, 2012.
The Science Café series is organized by the Faculty of Science at Carleton University to discuss relevant issues facing our society and how science can help solve real-world problems. Meet some of our award-winning faculty members and graduate students as they share their excitement about science with the community. For more information, visit http://sciencecafe.carleton.ca/.
