How do neuroscientists get their start? What does the future of the field look like? Postdoctoral research fellows Alan Ceaser and Mariapaola Sidoli spoke with Barbara Webb, professor of biorobotics at the University of Edinburgh, and Carlos Brody, professor of neuroscience and molecular biology at Princeton University, to find out. Their conversation took place at the fourth Stanford Neurosciences Institute Symposium, where Webb and Brody were speakers. Ceaser and Sidoli are Stanford Neurosciences Institute Interdisciplinary Scholars.
