Department Seminar Series

Departmental Seminars are held on Thursdays from 13.00 - 14.00 in L50 in the Psychology Department. All staff and undergraduates are encouraged to attend the talks and are welcome to join us afterwards for less formal discussions over tea and coffee in the atrium of Biosciences. If you would like more time to talk with the speaker or want to join the speaker for a sandwich lunch before the talk, please contact the host listed for that seminar. Recognising that our audience is likely to be broad, speakers have been asked to make their talks accessible, focusing a substantial part of their material on general issues and background to their work. If you have suggestions for additional speakers or would like to know more about the program, please email:
