Today we have a number of industry announcements:
1) New editions of these Blog Carnivals (collections of blog posts around specific topics)
2) The Neurotechnology Industry Organization has launched a Neurotech Job Board dedicated to commercial neuroscience (mostly focused on clinical applications, like drugs and devices, not so much on prevention, health & wellness). And the Kaiser Foundation Rehabilitation Center is looking for a Research Project Manager.
4) Stephanie West Allen and Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz announce the Schedule of Events for their Brains On Purpose™ Seminars (“looking at conflict and the process of conflict resolution through the lens of neuroscience”): Colorado in October and Portland in November.
5) Registration is now open for my class on The Science of Brain Health and Brain Fitness (more here), October 9 30, at UC Berkeley Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).
6) A couple of great events
- The Aspen Health Forum by the Aspen Institute, October 3-6th
- The Society for Neuroscience conference in San Diego, November 4-7th
7) The Mind & Life Institute announces 2 CDs released by Daniel Goldman and available here
- Paul Ekman, on the CD Knowing Our Emotions, Improving Our World, “describes the great impact his participation as a presenting scientist in the 2000 Mind & Life meeting has had on his subsequent personal and professional life, and what he continues to learn from his ongoing collaboration with the Dalai Lama.”
- Daniel Siegel, on the CD Better Lovers, Better Parents, Better People, “elaborates on the therapeutic implications of a concept central to Mind and Life’s research program: neuroplasticity, the maxim that the brain sculpts itself through repeated experiences throughout our lives.”
Aren’t we living interesting times?
