CVCN Colloquium Series 2005

Each year, the CVCN invites leading researchers in the fields of visual and cognitive neurosciences to our laboratories and the NDSU campus to meet with faculty and students to exchange ideas and information, and to give public presentations describing important new discoveries made in their own laboratories. Here is a list of 2005 speakers.
