Durham, N.C– Doctor Leonard White an Associate Professor in Orthopaedic Surgery was recently appointed as Co-Director by the Vice Provost of Interdisciplinary Studies. Doctor White is looking to grow this section of Brain & Society.
“Bass Connections in Brain & Society engages undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty from different programs and majors in an immersive curriculum that combines research and coursework into a common program of scholarship in multidisciplinary project teams. Curricular and project elements build connections between basic research in neuroscience (and related biological sciences) and socially challenging questions in medicine, the humanities, public policy, economics, ethics and law, to understand issues such as physical and social responses to transformative events; the workings of the brain in rhetoric and the arts; memory in legal testimony; and the role of decision processes in shaping our institutions and public policies. Each Brain & Society team tackles a current issue relating to the brain and its link to society as a whole.”
