Hansmann Lecture at Hamilton to Feature Professor of Neuroscience

By staff  |  Contact staff
Posted March 2, 1998
The David T. McLaughlin Distinguished Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at Dartmouth College Michael S. Gazzaniga will deliver the 1997-1998 Ralph E. and Doris M. Hansmann Lecture at Hamilton College. Professor Gazzaniga will speak on Thursday, March 5, at 4:10 p.m., in the Hamilton College Science Auditorium. His talk The Mind's Eye is free and open to the public.

Professor Gazzaniga has studied epileptic patients who have had neurosurgical operations in which the connections between the hemispheres of the brain have been disconnected. His creative experiments have revealed important information about the roles of the left and right brain hemispheres in human cognition and consciousness.

Previous speakers in the Hansmann lecture series have included former U.N. undersecretary general Sir Brian Urquhart and current New York state senator Raymond Meier.
