SFI News:

NeuroX: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Pop-Neuroscience sponsored by the Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study at George Mason University is set for May 8-10 at Founders Hall on the GMU Arlington, Va., campus.

Perspectives and applications from neuroscience are increasingly being applied to work in other areas, spawning new, interdisciplinary fields of the name “neuroX” where X can be almost anything from ethics to marketing.

 
What new insights can they provide? How much of neuroX is substantive? In this May 2013 symposium, scientists, decision-makers, and members of the media will explore current states-of-the-art in neuroeconomics, neuroengineering, neuroinformatics, neurolaw, social neuroscience, neuroethics, cultural neuroscience, neuroanthropology and more.

The program is designed for senior and mid-level personnel in government, business and the non-profit sectors.
