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

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.

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.
