    The Helix Center is pleased to announce that Xiao-Jing Wang, Professor of Neurobiology, Adjunct Professor of Physics, Applied Mathematics and Psychology, and Director of the Swartz Program in Theoretical Neuroscience, all at Yale University, will participate in a roundtable discussion when philosophy meets mathematics meets neuroscience in "What Can Mathematics Teach Us About the Mind/Brain?"

    Donations Accepted

    New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute
    247 East 82nd Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenues)
    The Marianne & Nicholas Young Auditorium


    This roundtable investigates how cutting-edge mathematical models are elucidating the computational rules encoding brain functions for a deeper understanding of mind.

    Professor Wang will be joining Ned Block (Silver Professor of Philosophy, Psychology and Neural Science, New York University); Bard Ermentrout (Distinguished University Professor of Computational Biology and Professor of Mathematics, University of Pittsburgh); Ken Miller (Professor of Neuroscience, Physiology, and the Center for Theoretical Biology, Columbia University); and George Reeke (Associate Professor and Head of the Laboratory of Biological Modeling, Rockefeller University).
