Nobel Laureate Gives Speech at USTC in Anhui

Pub Date:18-04-09 10:49 Source:www.cnanhui.org

Edvard Moser, a Norwegian psychologist and neuroscientist who won the Nobel Prize in 2014, delivered a speech in the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in Hefei, capital of East China’s Anhui province, on Sunday.

Titled The Brains Navigation System, the speech attracted many students, experts and amateur biologists.

Jointly launched by Anhui Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs and the USTC, the event is the first of a series of lectures given by overseas experts. They aim to expose local students and experts to foreign ideas without going abroad.

Edvard shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2014 with his then-wife May-Britt Moser and their mentor John O’Keefe for their work identifying the place cells that make up the brain’s positioning system.

The administration staged eight lectures in 2017 and will kick off this year’s series successively.

A student of microelectronics who came to the lecture hall early said the subject of the speech had nothing to do with his major, but it was worth learning as the Nobel laureate introduced his academic results in a lively yet rigorous way.
