Plasticity, structure and function of the brain (Festschrift in honour of Colin Blakemore)

Organised by Andrew Parker, University of Oxford, UK
and Ian Thompson, King's College London, UK

Monday 11 July 2011

Thirty-five years ago Colin Blakemore presented the BBC Reith Lectures on the “Mechanics of Mind”. These lectures presented a progressive programme for understanding cognition and its development, rooted in Colin’s own research in the structure, function and plasticity of the visual system. This symposium returns to those fundamental themes to review the progress towards the goals identified in Colin’s lectures and to survey the prospects for the decades ahead.
