Apostolos P Georgopoulos
On October 23rd, BSC Director Apostolos Georgopoulos was one of 23 inaugural honorees at the commemoration of the new Medical School Wall of Scholarship. The Wall of Scholarship highlights the work of current faculty members with a primary appointment in the Medical School who have first or last author credits on a publication that has been cited at least 1000 times by two of three citation indices. Dr. Georgopoulos is the first author of the highly-cited 1986 paper in Science entitled Neuronal population coding of movement direction. The program featured comments from President Eric Kaler, Provost Karen Hanson, VP for Research Brian Herman, and Health Dean Brooks Jackson.
