|Location:||SUNY: Maxcy 104|

|Dates:||Thu 2:00 PM 03/21|
This course will take the form of a discussion of passages, images, and concepts that structure how we speak and think about the nervous system. Our goal is to think aloud about what metaphors do in neuroscience and how they create and elude meaning.
Stephen Casper is a Full Professor in History at Clarkson University. He has written extensively on the histo- ry of the mind and brain sciences. He is currently writing a cultural history of concussion.
