A symposium in honour of Professor Peter Redgrave

Friday 30th January 2015

*William James, 1890

Professor Peter Redgrave has recently retired from a long and illustrious
career in teaching and research, most latterly at the Department of
Psychology in the University of Sheffield.  As a neuroscientist, his
research into the basal ganglia and the role of the neurotransmitter
dopamine therein has been world leading.  To celebrate this achievement, we
have invited a number of Professor Redgrave's collaborators and peers from
around the world to give talks which we are sure will educate and entertain
us in equal measure.  You are cordially invited to join us at this event.
