Last year Stanford launched the new Stanford Neurosciences Institute, led by visionary neurobiologist William Newsome, PhD. Part of his job over the past year has been to inspire faculty to think beyond their own labs and to dream about what they could accomplish if they work together. He called this the Big Ideas in Neuroscience.
This week, Newsome will be taking questions about your Big Ideas (or Big Questions) in brain research as part of a Stanford Open Office Hours event on Facebook. Are you curious how we learn and remember? What technologies might allow us to peer into the brain and even manipulate its function? How a deeper understanding of the brain could influence public policy, education and the law? Go to the Facebook page for the event and submit your questions by tomorrow (Oct 1).
