The new Dr. Daniel C. Andreae Laboratory for Brain Research, established through a gift from Dr. Dan Andreae of Toronto, was celebrated with Dr. Ivo Spiegel of the Department of Neurobiology. who will run the lab. Dr. Andreae, a professor of psychology with doctorates in neuroscience and education, spoke about his commitment to science and his particular interest in Dr. Spiegel’s focus on the ‘nature versus nurture’ quandary: to what extent do experience and environment dictate brain function, and to what extent do our genes do so.
