MCDONNELL-PEW CENTRE FOR COGNITIVE
NEUROSCIENCE


Visiting Fellowship awards

An award from the J.S. McDonnell Foundation, St Louis, USA, will continue to
fund the Oxford McDonnell–Pew Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience until
April 2003. The centre, which is closely integrated with the Medical Research
Council Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, 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 at
http://www.cogneuro.ox.ac.uk.

The renewed centre offers several forms of support, including visiting
fellowships for distinguished researchers from overseas or elsewhere in Britain
who wish to work within the centre for periods between a week and several
months. A modest grant may be provided to help with costs of travel and
accommodation (but not salary or stipend), and to pay a bench fee to the host
department.

There is no application form. Applications should include the following
information:

name, address, and status of applicant (in the form of a very brief
curriculum vitae);

names and addresses of collaborators in Oxford;

a brief statement (up to 300 words) of the proposed research;

a list of any publications that have already resulted from the research;

an outline plan of visit/s and expenditure, with total estimated budget;

other sources of funding and the amount requested.

Applications can be submitted at any time (e-mail is acceptable), to
Sally Harte, Administrative Secretary, McDonnell–Pew Centre for Cognitive
Neuroscience, University Laboratory of Physiology, Parks Road,
Oxford OX1 3PT (telephone: (2)72497, fax: (2)72488, e-mail:

EXAMINATION SCHOOLS


Accommodation for Lectures

Hilary Term 2001

The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if Professors,
Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture at the Schools in Hilary
Term 2001 could inform the Clerk of the Schools at the end of the present
term. It is necessary to know whether a room suitable for an audience of

schools will accommodate more than that number.

Leave for the use of rooms for lectures will expire at the end of the
seventh week of Hilary Term.

Afternoon lectures should normally finish by 6 p.m.

Attention is drawn to the fact that overhead projection equipment and 35-
mm projectors are available. When these facilities are required the Clerk of
