El Centro Chicano and the Office of the Provost welcomed Cuban neuroscientist, Pedro Valdes-Sosa, to speak about Cuban-American relationships on Monday in Seeley G. Mudd hall.
The lecture was the first event of the Latino Last Lecture series, where prominent speakers will showcase their professional, personal and cultural life experiences, answering the question, “If you could only give one last lecture, what would you say?”
Valdes-Sosa is the general vice director for research of the Cuban Neurosciences Center and also a member of the editorial boards of publications such as Neuroimage, Meddic and Audiology and Neurotology.
During the lecture, Valdes-Sosa mentioned many of his career accomplishments when the field of neuroscience was emerging, which include studying wavelengths and detecting correlations between people’s health and personalities. Valdes-Sosa also developed a program to track brain waves during a coma using a personal computer.
