Neurobiology and Behavior


Neuroscience Seminars at the Dept. of Neurobiology & Behavior

Prominent outside speakers are invited to visit our departments and centers and discuss their work in a formal seminar.  

In the fall semester, the first six seminars are organized around a specific field of basic Neuroscience Research. The last four seminars of the Spring Semester are organized to learn about the most cutting edge approaches to the study of the Neurobiology of Diseases. All other seminars are presented by speakers whose work covers several aspects of brain research, from molecular to cognitive neuroscience. These weekly seminars are part of the training for students enrolled in the Program in Neuroscience (PiN) and provide an opportunity for PiN students and faculty to interact with outstanding Neuroscientists. Attendance is open to all of the campus Community. 

Unless otherwise noted, all seminars are on Thursdays at 12:00 p.m. in the Life Sciences Bldg - Room 038
