The 2014 Mortimer D. Sackler, M.D. Summer Institute

Directors: BJ Casey, Bill Fifer, and Declan Murphy

The 2014 Mortimer D. Sackler, M.D. Summer Institute was held July 14-18 on Manhattan’s beautiful Upper East Side and directed by Dr. BJ Casey of the Sackler Institute at Weill Cornell Medical College, Dr. Bill Fifer of the Sackler Institute at Columbia University and Dr. Declan Murphy of the Sackler Institute at King's College London. This year’s course had an all star cast of distinguished speakers, who have made their mark on the fields of developmental, affective and cognitive neuroscience. The themes of the course focused on the basic principles of learning and development, both typical and atypical, as well as sensitive periods. Participants had a friendly debate in which they discussed if earlier is always better. Participants benefitted from lectures, and from direct interactions with the lecturers during both social and scientific events scheduled each day. Room and partial board was provided for the attendees through generous support from the Mortimer D. Sackler, M.D. family.
