Kavli Lectures

The Institute sponsors lectures featuring world-class researchers whose work relates to cerebral cortical function. The goal of these lectures is to stimulate the study of cortical function and its role in human thought.

Kavli Workshops

The Institute's annual or semi-annual workshops focus on the general topic of cerebral cortical organization, function, development and evolution. These meetings aim to foster the exchange of ideas and techniques among investigators from multiple fields who share the goal of understanding the functional properties of the cerebral cortex.

Kavli BRAIN Coffee Hours

This event series, supported by The Kavli Foundation, aims to bring together researchers from different backgrounds and areas of expertise to share their work and enhance interdisciplinary collaboration in neuroscience.
