The Hans-Lukas Teuber Memorial Lecture is made possible by the Robert K. Yin Fund, established in 1998 by Robert K. Yin (BCS Ph.D. 1970), founder and president of Cosmos Corporation. Dr. Yin wished to commemorate the department's founder and first chairman, whose vision continues to inspire and inform the department's work. Dr. Teuber was also a consensus builder and a great teacher—attributes that are celebrated in this lecture series. Speakers include distinguished members from the neuroscience and cognitive science community, who are selected by a small group of graduate students in conjunction with a faculty member.
The MIT Colloquium on the Brain and Cognition is a lecture series held weekly during the academic year and features a wide array of speakers from all areas of neuroscience and cognitive science research. The social teas that follow these colloquia bring together students, staff, and faculty to discuss the talk, as well as other research activities within Building 46, at MIT, and around the world. This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, the McGovern Institute for Brain Research, and the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory at MIT. Colloquia are open to the community, and are held in MIT's Building 46, Room 3002 (Singleton Auditorium) at 4:00PM with a reception to follow.
