Kavli Lecture: From Neural Circuits to Nanocrystals

Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington DC

In these inaugural Kavli Lectures in Washington, D.C., two of the 2008 Kavli Prize laureates, Louis E. Brus and Sten Grillner, will take us on a journey from the small scale of nanoscience to the complex world of neuroscience.

Maxine Singer, president emerita of the Carnegie Institution for Science, will moderate a dialog that explores fundamental questions about life and matter all the way down to molecules and atoms, where nanoscience and neuroscience meet.

Co-hosted with the Royal Norwegian Embassy and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. The Kavli Lecture is part of the Carnegie Capital Science Evenings program. There will be introductions by Robert Conn, President of the Kavli Foundation, and by Reidun Sirevåg, Secretary General of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters
