Honoring Patricia Goldman-Rakic
Pasko Rakic, director of the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience, introduced the 2013 Goldman-Rakic NARSAD Distinguished Lecture. The event is named after his late wife, Patricia Goldman-Rakic, an eminent Yale neuroscientist, who is pictured in the slide.
Stanford neuroscientist Karl Deisseroth
Deisseroth gave the Goldman-Rakic NARSAD Distinguished Lecture and described the development of a chemical-engineering technique, known as CLARITY, that renders intact brain tissue transparent.
