February 5, 7pm, Another Thought: Lecture by Dr. Leah Kelly.

Dr. Leah Kelly, a neuroscientist at The Rockefeller University, discusses how various traits long held to belong to the “mind,” such as memory, learning, and decision-making can be found outside their traditional seats in the brain and nervous system. In overviewing some of the perceptive and affective faculties that lay farther afield in our bodies, Dr. Kelly will raise questions about the limits of current models for cognition and behavior, critiquing standardized experimental paradigms used in neurological research through the lens of mental health.
