This Friday 2 May from 3pm in the Psychology Reading Room (Cornett A228) grad student Kaitlyn Fallow provides a round-up of her research on response bias in recognition memory.  All are welcome to this, the penultimate CaBSSem of the season (although we also anticipate a couple of summer cabssems).

A special reminder that next week's grand finale features Don Stuss, a world-renowned expert on the frontal lobes, presenting a very big-picture talk, "Lessons learned in Social Neuroscience: 35 years of Experience."  Please note that this talk is on Thursday (not Friday) 8 May from 3pm.   It is scheduled for the Reading Room but we will move across the hall if (as I expect) the room fills up.

If you would like to meet with Don Stuss earlier in the afternoon, please let me know and I will see if I can set something up.
