        FUNCTIONAL NEUROIMAGING: Looking at the Mind

          An International Symposium sponsored by
  the Massachusetts Biomedical Research Corporation and
the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Radiology

    Back Bay Hilton, Boston, MA.  Nov. 5 & 6, 1992

Functional neuroimaging is the application of instruments to view the
changes in physiological state which accompany the work of the brain. It
is also a window into a deeper understanding of the interaction of the
mind and the organism which supports it. By assembling together leaders in
the development of that understanding, the symposium, "Functional
Neuroimaging: Looking at the Mind" will provide a forum for considering
whether the boundaries of physiology and consciousness are impenetrable,
or if with the tools of functional neuroimaging we are approaching a
watershed of epistemology.
