2006-07 Social Science Colloquium: "A Program in Neuroscience"
2006-2007 Academic Year
The Bucknell Neuroscience Lecture Series celebrates our new Program in Neuroscience at Bucknell University.
We are delighted to join the large number of academic institutions and researchers worldwide that are engaged in the exploration of the brain and behavior.
The field of neuroscience is dedicated to the study of the brain and nervous system: the physiological locus of our thoughts, perceptions, memories, desires and actions. Neuroscience promises to influence nearly every domain of human inquiry, and it is now part of the public dialogue on the nature of human existence. Tom Wolfe, celebrated author and the recent recipient of Bucknell’s Janet Weis award in Contemporary Letters, described neuroscience as “the future of academia” and a field that is “changing the way that humans look at themselves.” (learn more)
