Brain Day is coming to the University of Waterloo this April 8, 2019. All are welcome. The event is free, and we have a marvelous line up of speakers that will cover the full gamut from philosophy of mind, to human decision making, to computational models and tools for neuroscience. Coffee and refreshments will be available from 8:30, with the talks starting at 9:00 AM. The venue will be in the E7 3343. Look for E7 on the campus interative map. A poster with the schedule for the whole day can be found here.
