Philosophy, Psychology and Neuroscience Research Seminars

The PPN Research Seminar is a joint endeavour to promote interdisciplinary discussion between Philosophy, Psychology and Neuroscience.

Time: 4pm

Venue: Normally these take place in the Psychology Level 6 Meeting Room (62 Hillhead Street) or the Reid Room, Philosophy Level 4 (67 Oakfield Avenue), however, for 2020-2021 they will take place by Zoom.

In addition to the regular meetings, we 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.
