Behind the MUPC 2014 Keynote:Stumbling into the Brain: Applying Watson's "Rules for Success" to a Career in Cognitive Neuroscience
Angus MacDonald III, Ph.D., University of Minnesota
John Watson, the co-founder of modern genetics, suggested 5 rules for Success in Science. In this talk I will unpack these rules, and examine that advice as it has applied to a series of discoveries about the prefrontal cortex, and failures of prefrontal cortex in psychiatric disorders, during a career spent doing neuroimaging.
