2013 Meeting of the Minds

The 4th annual Meeting of the Minds symposium was held at Stony Brook University on November 15, 2013, and was well attended by a cross-section of faculty and students from all over the university as well as some members of the public. The meeting also doubled as the opening of a SUNY-wide "Brain Network of Excellence (BNE)" workshop, which continued over the weekend. This workshop was convened by the Neuroscience Institute at the request of the SUNY Research Foundation to facilitate efforts of the large community of neuroscientists across SUNY's 64 campuses. 

The lectures on November 15 were designed to highlight interdisciplinary neuroscience relevant to brain activity mapping, the national grand scientific challenge recently announced by President Barack Obama.
