Colloquium Series


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 2018-2019 Colloquium Series will officially launch in September 2018.
