In addition to its role as center of excellence in neuroscience research, the Institute aims to promote science to the general public. Every year the Institute organises several science dissemination activities.
Furthermore, the Institute fosters a strong educational mission. As a part of this mission, the Institute is dedicated to bringing national and international experts in neuroscience to share their experiences at the University of Barcelona, in the framework of the Neuroscience Conference Series.
The Neuroscience Conference Series (NSC), organised by the Institute of Neurosciences, is a great opportunity to meet international distinguished neuroscientists, who will present the latest advancements in their respective field of research.
NeuroArt is a science communication project organised by the Institute of Neurosciences. The aim of this project is to inspire young students to create works of art based on the nervous system (structure, function or plasticity).
The Barcelona Lecture Series 2019 (BLS19) is a collection of talks from international and in-house leading researchers organized by the Faculty of Psychology of the University of Barcelona (UB). The lectures take place from February to June 2019, approximately every two weeks, at different venues within the Faculty of Psychology (Edifici Ponent, Campus Mundet). Invited researchers work on a large variety of topics related to cognition and behavior, making the lectures attractive to a wide audience from and outside the Faculty of Psychology, with topics ranging from speech perception to virtual reality and approaches from basic experimental research to modelling and clinical applications. The involvement of in-house researchers creates a good opportunity for students to get to know what research is being conducted at the Faculty of Psychology, and for researchers alike promoting the communication and collaboration among groups.
