I was wondering if I am allowed to post the message below for everyone to see. If I am allowed could you please tell me how to do it in NeuroNetwork?

“I am an associate professor at Saint Peter’s University.  My research interest is in cognitive modeling.  The research is in semantic modeling of language in computational linguistics and in brain-style modeling.   Do you know anyone at your university that may be interested in collaborating in a brain research project?  I will be happy to share my research project with anyone interested in knowing more about it.”

Best,

Marcia

Dear colleague,

I am involved in a project, run by the Scientific and Cultural Affairs Office of the Spanish Embassy in UK, aimed to tighten the bonds of cooperation between the scientific communities of both countries.

If interested please feel free to add me to your social networks, and invite your colleagues and students to do so:
