Each year, the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience hosts a lecture series, traditionally named the Colloquium Series, whereby experts in the psychology and/or neuroscience field are welcome to inform inquisitive Dalhousie and broader community members about their research.
The series is organized by the Colloquium Committee consisting of departmental faculty and staff, and student societies: Dalhousie Student Union (DSU), Undergraduate Neuroscience Society (UNS), and Dalhousie Association of Psychology Students (DAPS).
The 2016-2017 Colloquium Series will officially launch in September 2016.
Below you will find confirmed dates for the upcoming year:
All talks are held in the Life Sciences Centre (LSC), Room 5260 at 3:40 pm, unless otherwise noted.
