Speak Up: The role of communication in modern neuroscience

May 29th, 2-4PM at University of Toronto

Whether you are trying to write an effective review article, talk about your work at a conference, or start a blog, science communication is a vital part of modern neuroscience. That’s why it’s important to understand the many roles that concise, skillful communication has in our science, and the ways we can use science communication to both develop professionally and increase the impact of our science in society.

This session will include a series of presentations from researchers and professional science communicators on the roles of communication in neuroscience, and the many paths to a career in science communication. The presentations will be followed by a discussion panel and question and answer period.

Join us for an afternoon of inspiring and evocative discussion!
