McDONNELL-PEW CENTRE FOR COGNITIVE
NEUROSCIENCE

A new award from the J.S. McDonnell Foundation, based in the United
States of America, will continue to fund the Centre for Cognitive
Neuroscience at the University from May 1998 for a further five
years, ending April 2003. The centre links work on many aspects of
brain research relevant to human cognition in several departments at
Oxford and other institutions.

The McDonnell-Pew Centre encourages work in all areas of cognitive
neuroscience across all relevant disciplines and embraces research on
experimental, theoretical, and clinical studies of perceptual
analysis, memory, language, and motor control, including
philosophical approaches to cognition. Current and fuller information
on the centre is available on the Web at
http://www.physiol.ox.ac.uk/mcdp.

The renewed centre offers several forms of support:

—One-year graduate studentships;

—Visiting fellowships, to contribute to the costs
of short-term visits from distinguished researchers from overseas;

—Seminar programme;

—Workshops, for the planning of collaborative
research;

—Annual Autumn School in Cognitive Neuroscience,
mainly for graduate students and postdoctoral scientists;

—Annual Summer School in Connectionist
Modelling
;

—Network grants, to cover the costs of exchange
visits for collaboration with laboratories elsewhere in the world,
especially in Europe and North America;

—Research support fund, providing small grants for
pilot projects and experience in new techniques;

—Pilot project grants for functional Magnetic
Resonance Imaging, to enable investigators to start projects at the
Oxford Centre for Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain
(FMRIB);

—Travel fund, especially for costs of visits to
other laboratories or to training courses to learn new techniques.

Support is normally restricted to members of the McDonnell--Pew
centre but, in exceptional circumstances, applications from others
will be considered.

Anyone wishing to join the mailing list of the centre should contact
Harriet Fishman, Administrative Secretary, McDonnell--Pew
Secretariat, University Laboratory of Physiology, Parks Road, Oxford
