Join us for a special public lecture by Visiting Hood Fellow, Professor Martyn Goulding


'Understanding how the brain works: the real challenge'

A New Zealander and graduate of the University of Auckland, Professor Martyn Goulding is an internationally recognised and highly acclaimed molecular neuroscientist who leads the Molecular Neurobiology Laboratory at the prestigious Salk Institute (San Diego, USA).

Join us as Professor Goulding takes a historical perspective, outlining some of the key things that we have learnt about the brain and nervous system, and then, switching to the future and where he feels there will be real progress in the next 20 years.  

Professor Goulding will use examples from his own research and highlight the important contributions of people like Eccles and Iggo in our understanding of how neurons function and how the central nervous system, including the spinal cord, is functionally organised.

Wednesday 15 March, 2017 

Lecture from 6-7pm, followed by drinks and nibbles.
