Reflections by participants

 

IN the third week of each session, the participants were invited to write personal reflections on one of the presentations. This could be about the presented data, or about thoughts and ideas that emerged during the discussions. The reflections were presented to other participants for comments and discussion. Participants sent the final versions to JIAS upon their return home.

The reflections of ten of the participants appear below. They comprise the only formal output of the Colloquium, and serve to reflect its continuing impact on the participants and therefore on neuroscience in Africa and other parts of the developing world.
