MIT Building 46 - Third Floor Atrium + Auditorium + All Seminar Rooms
In 1994, when Nobel laureate Susumu Tonegawa and others launched a fledgling MIT center devoted to the study of learning and memory, new brain-mapping technologies inspired visions of quantum leaps in the ability to explore how we learn, remember, and think. Innovations followed in “seeing” the working brain in action, in probing genetic effects, and in interpreting data, but the enduring theme of the entity that evolved in 2002 into the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory is a highly collaborative, cross-disciplinary approach that addresses every level of brain function from molecules to synapses, neural circuits to behavior. Join us as we celebrate a decade of the Picower Institute's formidable achievements in unraveling the complexity of the human brain.
