Neuroscience

Seminars

The Neuroscience Seminars are intended to cover all aspects of Sussex Neuroscience from molecular and cellular neuroscience to neural circuits, behavioural neuroscience and computational neuroscience. Our seminars reflect the interests of neuroscientists across the campus drawn from Life Sciences, Psychology, BSMS & Informatics. Speakers are drawn mainly from across the UK and Europe, though we also have occasional speakers from further afield. Our recent speakers range from highly distinguished leaders in their respective fields to those at the beginning of their career but they all share one thing in common - interesting and exciting research at the cutting edge. Enthusiastic and interested members of the university at all levels are welcome to attend the seminars

All current seminars in our series are listed below.
