We have scheduled a Q&A with Dr. Lorraine Tyler. This will be a great opportunity to chat with Dr. Tyler, ask questions and gain insight from a fellow woman in neuroscience. 

Lorraine K Tyler is Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge. She heads the Centre for Speech, Language and the Brain, an interdisciplinary research group which combines neuroimaging, neuropsychological, and behavioural methods to reveal how the human brain is organised to support language, perception, and meaning.


The Q&A will be held at 10:00 am, Wednesday October 14, location TBD. Please join us!
