Call for 2014-2015 Seminar Speakers

(May 2014)

The CTSN had a fantastic seminar series this year and we hope to continue our CTSN Seminar Series with a great line-up next year.  We especially want to include speakers and topics relevant to the CTSN mission that we have not covered recently.  We have had several seminars related to social behavior, autism and oxytocin, but the CTSN is much broader than this.  We would like to maintain the breadth of scope of the CTSN but that requires participation and input from the entire CTSN membership.  Please send suggestions for speakers to Larry Young at
