Each year, the Hagey Lecture speaker also takes part in a colloquium for students in a related department or faculty. This year, the School of Public Health & Health Systems and the Department of Kinesiology are co-hosting the student colloquium with Hagey Lecture speaker Dr. Carol Barnes.
Carol Barnes will take students through her journey in Neuroscience – starting with graduate school at Carleton (Ottawa), then Dalhousie (Halifax) in the early 1970s, when the field of Neuroscience was just beginning – through post docs in Oslo and London – then an academic position at the University of Colorado, Boulder in 1982. She will outline some of the decisions and choices that were critical – goals of early tenure and promotion to full professor – election to President of the Society for Neuroscience, and other volunteer work for the field.
Barnes will encourage questions that students may have for a senior scientist, and, if time allows, will discuss some of the exciting new things going on in her lab – new ways of recording from primates who are completely free to behave (telemetry).
Students from all faculties are welcome.
Dr. Barnes will deliver the 2017 Hagey Lecture, Memory and the Aging Brain, on March 22.
