The BMI mailing list has been created for

  • those who are interested in being posted about BMI related activities
  • those who like to receive email for Table of Contents of the Brain-Mind Magazine, published by BMI

Anybody can sign on and off any time as he wishes. Anybody who is on the list can post to the list, but this is a moderated email list to avoid unrelated emails.

The Brain-Mind Institute (BMI) started from Fall 2011. From Fall 2011, the BMI Distinguished Speaker Series and other publicity activities would attract applicants for the BMI summer school 2012 as the first summer school offering. Additional offerings of the summer school will be made in the following years. Depending on the individual schedule of course enrollment and home-discipline tests, a miminmun of two summers seems possible for a researcher to receive a BMI 6-Discipline Certificate (6DC) — a BMI curriculum for 6 disciplines: biology, neuroscience, psychology, computer science, electrical engineering, and mathematics. Due to the unique breadth and depth of this BMI curriculum, these researchers would be future leaders of brain-mind research, contributing to research, education, government planning, grant and publication reviews, technology transfer, applications, and improvement of the quality of human life.

The material on this web site is under development by the BMI International Advisory Committee, the BMI International Program Committee, and the MSU Steering Committee.
