Announcing a special event for the Psychology and Neuroscience:


Books & Brains: An exploration of early psychology and neuroanatomy texts from Princeton University Library’s Special Collections


Tuesday, March 26th 3-4pm and Thursday, March 28th, 3-4pm

Special Collections Reading Room, Floor C, Firestone Library


Join us at the Special Collections Reading Room in the Firestone Library on March 26th and 28th for an opportunity to see some of Princeton’s rare and historically significant texts relating to psychology and early representations of the brain.


These rare texts and objects will take us on a journey through history as we explore the 16th century anatomies of Mondino De Luzzi and Vesalius, Victorian theories of phrenology, physiognomy, and madness, and look at some of the infamous psychological tests of the last century.


Open to all faculty, staff, and students from the Department of Psychology and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. Space is limited!  Please RSVP to the event you would like to attend via the link below or email mtesterman@princeton.edu.
