Supported Projects and Meetings
With the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (DIBS), we are launching lectures in 2015 that will culminate in a full day symposium in 2016. We will highlight research on evolutionary neurobiology, evolutionary perspectives on psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases, and behavioral decision-making in a health context. World-leader in evolutionary medicine, Randy Nesse, will be a keynote speaker.
