Brain Awareness Week

Neuroscience Research Day 2009

The keynote lecture was presented by Dr. Melvyn Goodale. Dr. Goodale holds the Canada Research Chair in Visual Neuroscience in the Department of Psychology and Physiology at the University of Western Ontario. He is best known for his work on the functional organization of the visual pathways in the cerebral crotex and was a pioneer in the study of visuomotor control in neurological patients. Currently, his research focuses on fMRI imaging of the activity in the normal human brain as it performs different kinds of visual tasks.
