Some Short Podcasts From The 2009 Neuroleadership Summit At UCLA

From Stephanie West Allen’s blog on Neuroscience and conflict resolution.

I got back late this week from the NeuroLeadership Summit with a strong need for a nap. The days were long and the presentations many. I hope to blog about some of the programs soon. Originally I had planned to blog in the evenings while there. Instead, soon after I returned to my room, I curled up in bed with a book and fell asleep minutes later.

People from all over the world were in attendance. I met and talked with a large number of people involved with a myriad of intriguing uses of neuroscience. (I only met one other mediator, though.) All in all, a very well-spent few days!

Now for the podcasts found here.
