The Groningen Graduate School for Behavioral and Cognitive Neurosciences (BCN) announces its second
Summer School in Behavioral and Cognitive Neurosciences 30 June - 11 July 1997 Groningen, The Netherlands
Scope Brain, behavior and cognition traditionally are studied by various disciplines, ranging from linguistics and experimental psychology through behavioral biology, biophysics and biochemistry to the preclinical and clinical neurosciences. Within the Groningen Graduate School for Behavioral and Cognitive Neurosciences (BCN), established in 1991 at the University of Groningen, researchers join efforts to study these different areas of brain research. The Summer School brings together international expertise in this multidisciplinary field, with a focus on the interaction between the disciplines.
Program The Summer School program consists of 12 master classes and 4 general lectures. They are taught each morning (advanced classes) and each afternoon (introductory classes) in four parallel sessions, and provide an excellent opportunity for in-depth discussions. The general lectures will be held in the afternoon, after the afternoon sessions.
