All 2020-2021 Columbia Neuroscience Seminars will occur virtually at 1 pm on Tuesdays
The Columbia Neuroscience Seminars are the flagship venue at Columbia for invited speakers from local, national, and international scientific communities to share new findings in neuroscience. The weekly lectures and associated events are designed to draw together the neuroscience community at Columbia and to catalyze the conversations and collaborations that advance the discipline.
The live seminars, including a pre-recorded lecture with curated closed captions*, live Q&A, and post-lecture mingling, are open to Columbia affiliates. (Registration is required: register here.) Many lecture recordings are publicly accessible on the Zuckerman Institute YouTube channel approximately one week after each seminar. Invited speakers join meetings with faculty, graduate students and postdocs at Columbia to continue the conversation after their seminar. Those wishing to meet with a speaker may email the host listed below or see the contact information on individual event pages.
Speakers are invited by a Committee made up of faculty, postdocs, and graduate students from across Columbia's campuses. Committee members are listed below.
The updated Spring 2021 series poster is available for download here.
*We strive for accuracy in closed captioning. When there is a discrepancy between the captions and the speaker, the speaker's words take precedence.
The series is a collaborative effort of Columbia's Zuckerman Institute, the Department of Neuroscience, the Doctoral Program in Neurobiology and Behavior and the Columbia Translational Neuroscience Initiative, and with support from the Kavli Institute for Brain Science.
