This group is for anyone who wants to learn about and discuss the science and philosophy of cognition, behavior, and the brain. Most seminars involve a presentation with intermittent discussion. Neuroscience seminars assume a basic understanding of neuron function and brain structure (http://thebrain.mcgill.ca/).
There is reading material for each meeting, usually a journal article. We focus on recently published articles so that our discussions run parallel to the big conversations in neuroscience and cognitive science today. Occasionally we read classic papers to help us weave the big conversations into the bigger conversation of history.
And all this for the low, low price of zero dollars. You can't afford not to join! If you enjoy the group and would like to support it, you may make a donation (https://secure.meetup.com/Brain-and-Cognitive-Science-Seminar/contribute/). Alternatively, if/as we incur group expenses, we may accept donations at our meetings. Thanks for your support of this worthy group!
