The Society for Neuroscience announces it's most prominent speaker at this year's meeting, plus a few special considerations:
"Special security procedures will be in effect, as directed by the U.S. State Department Office of Diplomatic Security, which provides security for the Dalai Lama when he is in the United States. We have been advised that each registrant attending the lecture will have to be screened by walking through a metal detector prior to entering Hall D, and will have to remove metal objects from their pockets and bags prior to passing through the metal detector."
"For security reasons, the State Department asks that you not approach the podium or the microphones during the lecture. Those attendees in Hall D will be given cards when passing through the security check."
"Beginning at 2 p.m., traffic flow within the convention center will change in preparation for the lecture."
The title of the lecture is "The Neuroscience of Meditation". Feel calm already?
