Abstract

This presentation examines the multi-disciplinary nature of neuroscience and how we should train students for the future.  A first-year student today will retire in 2065, and se we should be training them so that they can excel in teaching and researching in neuroscience for the next 45 years.  What skills will be necessary and how do we teach these skills to our students? This presentation examines the interdisciplinary nature of neuroscience, the courses that should be taught, research skills and the integration of scientific, cultural and historical knowledge.  The important message is that we need to train students to function in a world of continuous change.
