CANCELLED: Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar: Sex Influences on Brain and Body: An Issue That is Here to Stay

Date: May 17, 2024

Time: 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.

About this Seminar

The last 20 years witnessed a remarkable shift in neuroscience- from overwhelmingly ignoring sex influences, to increasingly recognizing that sex influences on brain function are ubiquitous, and cannot be ignored, at least if we are to argue that our science applies equally to women as to men. This talk summarizes why understanding sex influences is so critical for brain science, and why the issue of sex influences on brain and body is here to stay.
