Let’s Hear it for the Graduate Students!

Deep South Philosophy and Neuroscience Workgroup

Philosophy and Neuroscience Graduate Student Showcase I

2022 Pacific APA Meeting Vancouver, British Columbia

April 13 & 14

As Mara McGuire once said, “We’re not in the South anymore.”

Patricia Churchland and James Woodward were scheduled to comment, but were unable to attend. Megan Delehanty jumped in at the last minute to substitute. Thanks again, Megan!

All commentary was delivered extemporaneously– neither Lauren nor Megan had read the papers, or seen the presentations in advance.
