Morality: A Neuroscientific Perspective

Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 8:00am to Wednesday, March 31, 2010 - 9:30pm

On Thursday, April 1, 2010 Sally Severino, MD []
is Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center will present

Morality: A Neuroscientific Perspective.

Description from Dr. Severino: Research findings from four disciplines of neuroscience
(neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, behavioral sciences, and cell biology) are moving
us toward a conceptualization of morality that emphasized our instersubjectivity.
As we come to a greater understanding of how our interpersonal interactions affect
our biology and psychology, these research findings suggest that our understanding
of morality must be based in our intersubjective behaviors. This supports some spiritual
wisdom and challenges others.

The seminar will be offered Thursday, April 1 from Noon - 1:30 p.m. in the Medical Center
Board Room Duke Clinic/Hospital South Room 1170B 1st floor Yellow Zone

Lunch will be provided, to be included in the count for lunch please register by Noon Monday, March 22.
