July 2011 - Important Message from Mel Goodale


Friends and colleagues,
I am sorry to have to let you know that Marc Jeannerod passed away on July 1 after a long illness. Marc was one of France's most visible neuroscientists and was a pioneer in the study of visuomotor control and more recently, in studies on the neural substrates of consciousness and the sense of agency.

I know that his work and ideas influenced a lot of people in CAPnet.
