    PNI Inside-Out Seminar Series: Neuroscience in critical dialogue with society 

    The "Inside-Out" seminars bring professors from other Princeton departments to speak with the PNI community about scholarship that impacts ideas and practices in our field. We are hoping to foster a trans-disciplinary dialogue that enriches our understanding of the societal forces shaping neuroscience and vice-versa. The first series will feature talks on a range of topics: how neuroscience impacts and interacts with conceptions of race, how "free will" is formulated in quantum mechanics, how implicit biases can be measured in machine learning models of human language use, and what this might mean for how bias is transmitted, and how the metaphors we use to think about the mind and brain have shaped their study in science and medicine.
