KAVLI BRAIN FORUM @ Emory and Georgia Tech

The Emory-Georgia Tech Kavli Brain Forum will continue again this year, with speakers approximately once a month giving talks on topics in theoretical and computational approaches to neuroscience. The aim of the Forum is to bring together researchers from the two campuses to hear from interesting speakers who will serve as the catalyst for continued discussions and collaborations amongst the Atlanta neuroscience community. Talks will be held at 3:30pm, typically on Wednesdays, with a reception of light refreshments immediately following. The fall schedule is:
