BCN Research

Supporting the BCN program is a faculty of researchers from various departments. These researchers share interests in the field of behaviour, cognition or neuroscience. We are lucky to have researchers from the biology, psychology, chemistry and kinesiology departments in our faculty which enrich our education with their unique perspectives! 

NSERC USRA Information

PowerPoint presentation for the NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA)


Colloquium is defined as an academic seminar on a broad field of study, usually led by a different lecturer at each meeting. For the BCN program, these are mandatory to attend. A major focus of the BCN program is to allow undergraduate students the opportunity to gain research experience in a professor's lab. The BCN faculty is comprised of researchers from the biology, psychology, chemistry and human kinetics departments.

Lecturers from outside the university also come in to present their research in the field of behaviour, cognition or neuroscience.

What are you waiting for, come on down and learn something new and connect with the professors!

Colloquia run bi-weekly during the school year on Thursdays at 4:00 pm in Biology Building room 122, all are welcome!
