PHILOSOPHY, PSYCHOLOGY AND NEUROSCIENCE
  This seminar series is a joint endeavour between the Psychology and the Philosophy Department. The aim is to promote interdisciplinary discussions and to communicate the research done in both departments. We meet every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month at 4pm, with alternately someone from Philosophy speaking in Psychology (Meeting Room level 6) and someone from Psychology presenting in Philosophy (Caird Room, 67/69 Oakfield Avenue). All staff and students are welcome to attend.
  For further information about these events, please contact Lucy S. Petro.
