Mind Brain Research Day - March 25, 2014
Register to attend here
For the past 18 years the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior has held a research day at Butler Hospital that has included a large poster session for students, residents and fellows and an internationally prominent keynote speaker. This year we are expanding this research celebration to encompass the entire Brown Brain Science community.
The inaugural Mind Brain Research Day will take place on Tuesday, March 25, 2014. The poster session will be held in Sayles Hall and Faunce House, and will run from approximately 11:00AM to 12:45PM. Dr. Helen Mayberg from Emory University will deliver the keynote lecture titled “What Has DBS Taught Us about the Neurocircuitry of Depression?” in Solomon at 1:o0PM. Dr. Mayberg is an international leader in the use of electrical stimulation to treat depression.
A major goal of this event is to bring together the broadest possible Brain Science community affiliated with Brown. It will be an opportunity for trainees at all levels – undergraduates, graduate and medical students, residents and postdocs – to display their research and exchange ideas with their peers. We want to be inclusive, so everyone who works in a mind- or brain-related field is welcome to put up a poster. We do not expect that posters will be created specifically for this event. Participants may use posters made for other meetings, with or without updates.
For Mind Brain Research Day to be successful our community must participate. Therefore we are reaching out to encourage you to attend and to spread the word. We expect this to be an annual celebration at Brown and we want to start off with a high level of participation and enthusiasm and build a growing sense of community. Please help us hit those marks.
Lunch will be provided to all who register by March 11 and awards will be made in different categories to those with the posters judged to be the best.
Feel free to contact Holly Wilker (Holly_Wilker@brown.edu) in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior with any questions.
This event is being sponsored by Brown Institute for Brain Science (BIBS), Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior (DPHB), Norman Prince Neurosciences Institute (NPNI), Department of Neurosurgery, and Department of Neurology.
See you on March 25!
