Scientific Day on Social Neurosciences
The Social Neuroscience Group (SNG) at the Université du Québec en Outaouais (UQO) is hosting its third scientific day on March 24, 2023. The in-person event is to promote the field of social and cognitive neuroscience among the general public and to provide a platform for students to share their research with the scientific community.
The day will feature several presentations on various topics related to social neurosciences, including a lecture on recovery after brain injury by Marie-Julie Potvin, a researcher member of the Réseau intersectoriel de recherche en santé de l'Université du Québec (RISUQ). Jessica Royer, a clinical neuropsychologist pursuing a PhD at McGill University's Integrated Neuroscience Program, will also deliver a lecture on the structure and connectivity of brain systems involved in human cognition.
There will be four types of presentations, including posters with and without results, datablitz, symposiums, and methodological workshops. The best poster and datablitz presentations will receive a prize. The symposiums will be grouped around similar central themes, with each one lasting 50 minutes, including the question period.
Caroline Blais, director of the SNG, Sara Tremblay, director of the NEuroSTimulation laboratory at UQO, and Chloé Galinier, PhD candidate in psychology and coordinator of the SNG, are committed to organizing this day and fostering a community of researchers and practitioners interested in social neurosciences.
This event promises to be an excellent opportunity for researchers to present their findings, share innovative ideas, and connect with other experts in the field. It will also be a unique opportunity for students to share their research with the scientific and student community. Those interested in social neurosciences should not miss this exciting opportunity to join the social neurosciences community on March 24, 2023.
