“The Developing Brain: New Directions in Science, Policy and Law”

Supported by the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center, the Department of Neurology, the Office of Neuroscience Research, and the Office of the Provost, this  conference kicked off a new effort at Washington University to address topics where the fields of neuroscience intersect with emerging issues for our society.  This new effort, led by the Office of Neuroscience Research, brought together the academic community as well as those outside our academic walls to engage in ways that help to educate and inform.
