Lost and Found: A Science Symposium about Navigation

Lost and Found symposium

The 2014 science symposium will focus on the important and challenging topic of navigation and way-finding. By bringing together experts in human cognitive neuroscience and neural computation, animal life science, anthropology and culture, space science, current and future technology, and emergency management, the Radcliffe Institute will conduct a broad, cross-disciplinary investigation about what it means to find our way.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration will open in early October. 

The symposium will be webcast live on this page November 14.
