The Neurobiology of Consciousness
The Neurosciences Institute Distinguished Lecture for the Public is an annual outreach lecture that gives the San Antonio community direct contact with leading ideas about the brain and neuroscience research from the influential neuroscientists that have defined key conceptual spaces and advances in contemporary neuroscience.
Lectures are preceded by a reception, and members of the community are invited to engage with our eminent guest and our neuroscience faculty.
This year, our Distinguished lecture will be given by George Perry. Find out more, here.
