About this Event

The Peter F. Ostwald, MD, and Lise Dechamps Ostward Lecture Series began in 1999 to honor the late Professor Peter F. Ostwald, MD, who served as a faculty member in the UCSF Department of Psychiatry for four decades. The lecture series is focused on exploring the relationship between artistic creativity and the human brain, particularly music and its connection with behavioral health.

The 10th Ostwald Symposium will be held on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 from 12:30-5:00 p.m. in Cole Hall Auditorium on the UCSF Parnassus Heights campus.

This half-day event, titled "Creativity and Neuroscience" will feature a keynote address by UCSF faculty member Charles Limb, MD, a hearing specialist, surgeon, and musician who studies the way our brains create and perceive music. Additional remarks will be delivered by Vincent Barras, MD, and Daniel Fornerod, both from the University of Lausanne's Institute for the Humanities in Medicine, on Peter Ostwald's contributions to the history of medicine.
