Center for Cognitive Neuroscience talk series

The CCN organizes a series of talks through the academic year by prominent investigators.

Innovators in Cognitive Neuroscience Seminar Series

In September 2020, the CCN launched a new seminar series, Innovators in Cognitive Neuroscience. This seminar series is devoted to highlighting innovative, disruptive advances in cognitive neuroscience. Innovators in Cognitive Neuroscience also is dedicated to leveraging science as a vehicle for social justice. Through this seminar series we hope to recognize outstanding research conducted by historically underrepresented groups (HURG) in Cognitive Neuroscience and related fields, including women, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and differently-abled individuals. Innovators in Cognitive Neuroscience is a formal collaboration between Dartmouth College, University of Pennsylvania, Yale University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton University, and Harvard University. It is funded by the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at Dartmouth College.

The list of speakers for academic year 2020-2021 can be found here: https://www.dartmouth.edu/ccn/ccn_talks/innovators.html
