BRI-NPI 40th Online Exhibit

The UCLA BRI-NPI 40th Anniversary Online Exhibition is in preparation. It will be unveiled in January 2002 and will contain additional text, photographs, documents, and links for which there was not room in the actual or "hardcopy" exhibit.


BRI-NPI 40th Anniversary Symposium ("Dopamine symposium")

Psychiatry & Neuroscience: The Past, Present and Future of Brain and Behavior
A Symposium Marking the 40th Anniversary of the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute and Brain Research Institute

February 8, 2002

Many of the speakers will highlight breakthrough research on dopamine and its role in psychiatric disorders ranging from the addictions to schizophrenia. The significance of the research presented at this symposium, however, extends far beyond a single molecule or brain system. The work of these researchers exemplifies the broad connections between mind and brain, psychiatry and neuroscience, and bedside and laboratory. To this end, the speakers will address historical, clinical, and neurobiological aspects of dopamine and their relationship to the broader questions of psychiatry and neuroscience.


Brain Mapping symposium

Mapping the Brain
Southern California Colloquium in the History of Science, Medicine and Technology

2001-2002 Program: The Social Organization and Cultural Import of Mapping

April 6, 2002

The Southern California Colloquium in the History of Science, Medicine and Technology is based within the History Department at UCLA and chaired by various members of its faculty. Its goal is to provide a quarterly, one-day event for graduate students and faculty in the region where new and cutting-edge approaches are discussed.

There is no fee for attending this Colloquium, but reservations are required for the lecture program. As in years past, lunch will be provided for all registered participants.
