The Jane and Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA hosted the inaugural Leo Rangell Endowed Lecture on November 14, 2013, at UCLA’s Carnesale Commons.
Dr. Eric R. Kandel, a 2000 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine and 2013 Leo Rangell Visiting Scholar from Columbia University, was the keynote speaker. Nearly 700 faculty, students and guests attended Dr. Kandel’s presentation, which featured a discussion of the arts and artists of the early 1900s in Vienna and an examination of the modern understanding of the human mind.
The Leo Rangell Professorial Endowment in Psychoanalysis is made possible by a generous gift from Stewart and Lynda Resnick to celebrate, perpetuate and advance the work of Dr. Leo Rangell in psychoanalysis through an investment in scholarship, education and research in the Jane and Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA.
