Each year the CNS Public Talk Series highlights an issue or theme. The 2019-2020 theme is Penn Research on Neuroscience and Society. We are featuring faculty from four of Penn’s schools, presenting their research into the social implications of neuroscience. Lectures run 4:30-5:30 followed by discussion and a reception. Our lectures are free to attend, but due to limited seating, please rsvp to: info@neuroethics.upenn.edu.
