Cognition and Brain Sciences Seminars

3:00 - 4:30 PM, Fridays

Online via Zoom

The Cognition and Brain Sciences (CaBS) program hosts a weekly seminar series (CaBSSem) most Friday afternoons from September through April. About two thirds of the sessions are dedicated to presentations by faculty and/or grad students in our program; the remaining third feature talks by visiting researchers.

Anyone with an interest in cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, cognitive science, or generally anything cognitive, is welcome and encouraged to attend.

If you would like to receive the weekly CaBSSem announcement, which typically includes an abstract for the upcoming talk, and you are not already receiving it through the Psychat or Neuroscience mailing lists, you can subscribe to the CaBSSem mailing list (
