The Rushton Lecture Series
The Rushton Lecture series is named for neuroscientist W. A. H. Rushton, who is renowned for his work in neuronal excitation and vision. Professor Rushton held the position of Distinguished Research Professor at FSU from 1968-1976, following his “first” retirement from the faculty at the University of Cambridge. The lecture series features presentations by prominent neuroscientists on contemporary topics. Formal and informal interactions with these internationally recognized experts are an important part of the Neuroscience Program's graduate training mission and the series enriches the academic environment at Florida State University.
