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

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
