Directing the Center for Neurodynamics

Biologist Lon Wilkins and physicist Frank Moss founded the Center for Neurodynamics in 1996. Ten years later, Bahar took over as director. As the research foci of the faculty continually change and new faculty join the team, the Center’s future direction is ever-evoloving: “There are a few people in psychology who are already doing brain imaging,” she says of the Center's research group, as well as “a person in philosophy who’s interested in the philosophy of how the brain works, the philosophy of cognition.”
