Clarkson University’s Casper Speaks at Neurological Institute of New York

Stephen T. Casper, visiting assistant professor of history at Clarkson University, spoke at Neurology Grand Rounds at the Neurological Institute of New York, Columbia University Medical Center, on February 10.

Casper’s lecture focused on the development of the sciences of the brain and mind in Britain.

He specifically addressed the social and cultural development of neurology and neuroscience and discussed the philosophical importance of neurology and neuroscience in the study of human nature.

He also discussed the global prominence of the neurosciences today and the implications for the 21st century.

Casper received his bachelor of science degree in biochemistry and neuroscience from the University of Minnesota and a Ph.D. in history of medicine at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at University College of London.
