What is life? – The future of biology seminar series, September 24

Title: Neural mirroring mechanism, imitation, and social cognition in infants and young children

Speaker: Andrew Melzoff, University of Washington, Seattle, US

Host: Hugo Lagercrantz

Location: Skandiasalen, Dept of Women´s and Childrens health, Astrid Lindgrens Barnsjukhus, Karolinska Univ Hospital, Solna

The What is Life-seminar series is inspired by the seminal book What is life? by Erwin Schrödinger, published 60 years ago.  In this seminar series this question is addressed again,  in view of the impressive development since then.

Leading scientists with an overview perspective are invited to discuss the challenges that meet us today in biology,  as a result of the -omics era, the availability of large amounts of data  as a result of high through-put techniques, and the possibilities provided by mathematics, simulation theory and computational biology.
