Gazzaniga to Leave Dartmouth

Michael Gazzaniga, the David McLaughlin Professor of Distinction, Director of the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, member of the President’s Council on Bioethics, and former Dean of the Faculty, is leaving Dartmouth to take a new position at the University of California-Santa Barbara. Curiously, Gazzaniga already appears on the UCSB psychology department’s faculty list.

Gazzaniga had resigned from his post as Dean of the Faculty in June 2004 after losing a vote of no-confidence among departmental heads.
