GMU Neuro592

The human brain is often described as the most complex object in the universe. Tens of billions of nerve cells-tiny tree-like structures—make up a massive network with enormous computational power.

GMU Neuro592 is based on the book, Trees of the Brain, Roots of the Mind, by Giorgio Ascoli. This course reveals another aspect of the human brain: the stunning beauty of its cellular form. Doing so, Giorgio makes a provocative claim about the mind-brain relationship.

Select Krasnow Monday Seminars

Each Monday afternoon during the academic year, the Krasnow Institute hosts a seminar at 4:00 p.m. at which an invited guest speaker gives a presentation on a topic in the cognitive sciences. Presentations are finished by 5:00 p.m. and a discussion period follows. All are welcome.

All meetings will be held on the George Mason University Fairfax campus in Lecture Room 229 of the Krasnow Institute building.
