Robert B. Livingston
April 26, 2002
Bob was once the Director for intramural research at both the NIMH and the NINDS. He was a charter member of Frank Scmitt's Neuroscience Research Program at MIT, where the word "neuroscience" was invented. Bob brought the idea to the then brand new medical school in La Jolla and recruited the first faculty in that field - clinical neurologists, anatomists, physiologists, chemists etc. He had many off campus activities: science advisor to the Dalai Lama; President of the Physicians for Social Responsibility, active in peace movements, radioactive waste disposal, infant nutrition, etc. He died on 4/26/02 at age 83.
