DISTINGUISHED LECTURE SERIES
In Basic and Medical Neuroscience
October 5, 1983 to May 2, 1984
This lecture series provides a survey of the newest and most exciting topics in the basic and medical neurosciences by the
leaders of the field. This research has an impact on the diagnosis, treatment and causes of mental disease, neurological illness
and on each person's view of himself.
All lecturers are internationally known for their research achievements and for their ability to present their story in an
exciting and clear manner to scientists, physicians and the public at large. This series is ideal for persons involved in
the health care system and those who enjoy learning about basic and medical neurosciences and now wish to hear about it from
the scientists who made the discoveries.
Several topics are immediately clinically relevant, both for the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Others involve new findings
in the basic neurosciences which are certain to have wide application in the future.
