Psychological and Brain Sciences Research Showcase

Friday, November 5, 2021 4:30pm to 6:30pm

From neuroscience to social psychology, learn about the latest research innovations and technology used by the faculty and students in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences.

Get an in-depth look at how PBS applies psychological science to solving humanity's problems in our ever-changing world. Through presentations from each of our five research programs, you'll see how research projects are created, data is collected, and results analyzed. 

PBS faculty from each program will present an overview of their area of science. They will highlight current research projects and how they approach finding solutions to some of humanities' great challenges relating to health and well-being.

All are welcome. Attend virtually or in person. No cost to participate. Light refreshments will be served.
