Students are required to participate in the Neuroscience Seminar Series during their entire Ph.D. program. The basis of the series is the Vollum Institute Seminar Series, which attracts leading neuroscientists from around the world. Prior to the seminar, students will meet to discuss recent publications by the seminar speaker. Each discussion is led by an advanced NGP student under the supervision of the faculty. Students then have lunch with the seminar speaker and discuss the most recent advances in that field of neuroscience.
