Social Brain seminar – April 21st at IoPPN

The student-led interdisciplinary seminar series on the ‘Social Brain’ brings together King’s students at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, as well as some students who are taught at Guy’s campus. This series is unique in that world-class early-career researchers deliver seminars on their work in social cognition. After the researchers have presented their work, they also give a short Q&A session about postdoctoral career progression as well as advice for MS.c. and Ph.D. students. Importantly, there is plenty of wine and food after the event, providing a great opportunity for social-networking with the speaker, and other academic staff. The next talk will be given by Michael Banissy (www.banissy.com)
