null “Sensory”: A public lecture within the “Convergence, Perceptions of Neuroscience” project (February 17, 2017)

The Brain Repair and Integrative Neuroscience (BRaIN) Program of the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) is proud to support Convergence, Perceptions of Neuroscience. This initiative, conceived by Dr. Cristian Zaelzer, a research associate at the RI-MUHC, brings together 17 neuroscience trainees from the BRaIN Program and 28 students from the Concordia University Faculty of Fine Arts to create works of art inspired by the trainees’ research projects. Two major events are planned for Spring 2017: an exhibit at the Visual Voice Gallery (April 22 to May 20) and a public outreach event as part of the annual meeting of the Canadian Association for Neuroscience (CAN) at la Grande Bibliothèque (BaNQ) and the Hotel Bonaventure (May 28-31 2017).

Join our participants for our next public lecture sponsored by the BRaIN Program and Montreal General Hospital Foundation. Our speakers will explain how the peripheral nervous system connects us to the environment through our senses: vision, smell, audition, touch and taste … and how these senses are exacerbated in some animals.

Where: Montreal General Hospital of the MUHC, 1650 Cedar Av, at the Lounge (L6 500)

When: February 17, 3 to 4 PM

Presenters: Hunter Shaw and Stephen Beukema (PhD candidates)
