Philosophy, Psychology and Neuroscience Research Seminars 2019/20

The PPN Research Seminar is a joint endeavour to promote interdisciplinary discussion between Philosophy and Psychology, and to communicate research carried out in both departments.

Time: 4pm

Venue: Either the Psychology Level 6 Meeting Room (62 Hillhead Street) or the Reid Room, Philosophy Level 4 (67 Oakfield Avenue), unless otherwise noted (see below).

In addition to the regular Research Seminar, we also hold Work in Progress (WiP) meetings where postgraduates present their work. WiP meetings are identified below.

All students, staff and visiting researchers are welcome to attend.
