The Centre for Interdisciplinary Brain Research (CIBR) is delighted to announce the 5th Annual Research seminar “Made in Jyväskylä” on Tuesday 5th of December in Agora, Auditory 2. After 2 years of brain research utilizing MEG-scanner, it is time to examine what we have been working on and take a look to the future challenges!

The MEG lab, as well as CIBR in general, was established to enhance interdisciplinary science in JYU. The range of topics by the speakers in the seminar suggests we have succeeded: the program consists of presentations by scientists from every faculty in University of Jyväskylä. This is a great opportunity for researchers from other fields of science,  to get familiar with the brain research done in Jyväskylä and probe the possibilities for collaboration.

After the talks there is an evening session at 18:00 – 21:00 with wine and snacks in Kärki building (Mattilanniemi 6). Visiting the MEG laboratory will be possible during the evening.

You are invited to present a poster on any topic related to brain and behavioral research, either work in progress or latest findings.
