CRBLM Scientific Day 2012

CRBLM is proud to announce its first Scientific Day, to be held at UQAM on Tuesday, May 15, 2012, from 10 am onwards.

Prof. Kevin Munhall (Queen’s University) will give a lecture entitled “The sound and the fury: two short talks about speech perception and production”.

The first CRBLM Scientific Day will put research conducted by its student members centre-stage, thanks to two poster sessions to be held in the afternoon. Numerous BRAMS students will be presenting their research on this occasion. Please note that this event is free and open to all.



10:30   Kevin Munhall, Queen’s University
