Neurobiology and Behaviour (NBB) Seminar Series

Organized by our Neurobiology and Behaviour (NBB) research group, this seminar series includes talks by students and faculty on the neural basis of behavior as well as journal club style discussions of recent advances in neuroethology and systems neuroscience. We also host an annual spring symposium with talks by students and faculty from both the local and international neuroscience community.

Winter 2024

Winter 2024 NBB Seminars are held on Fridays at 1:30 pm in Stewart Biology S3/4.  Click here to join via Zoom
