GW has a rich history of cognitive neuroscience research. A particularly famous series of studies was conducted by GW psychologist Richard Walk and his colleague Eleanor Gibson in the early 1960’s. Their “visual cliff” paradigm provided the inspiration for a generation of new researchers to investigate the development of spatial perception in human infants. GW researchers are now poised to usher in a new era of research leadership in cognitive neuroscience.
The objective of the GW Mind-Brain Institute is to create a community of scholars engaged in unique research and training in cognitive and behavioral neuroscience. We aim to provide distinctive, hands-on research opportunities for undergraduate students and cutting-edge, world-class training for graduate students.
2008-2009 University Seminar on Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience
This year, the Institute convened a University Seminar Series on Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience. For further information, please contact Professor John Philbeck at email@example.com.
The George Washington University Seminars program was established in 1985 to foster sustained discussion of issues that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries among members of the GW faculty and their distinguished counterparts in universities, research centers, federal agencies, international organizations, and private industries throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The goal of the Seminars is to connect the research and inquiry activities of the academy with the major institutions of society, thereby ensuring a sharing of information.
