Minds and brains

Columbia University President Lee Bollinger has announced a $200 million grant to build a science center on the proposed Manhattanville campus.

Gothamist linked to this page about the proposed center, with this odd diagram about how the role of the neuroscience center in the other disciplines of the University.

I think there's a lot to be done with
The Center will provide an unparalleled opportunity for linking research in the neurosciences to Columbia’s existing strengths in other scientific disciplines, notably physics, chemistry, engineering, and psychology. In addition, it will have a catalytic role in forging closer ties between the brain sciences, the programs of the business and law schools, and the many schools of the humanities. Through the integration of these programs, the Jerome L. Greene Science Center will ensure Columbia’s continued leadership in the modern study of brain and mind.
