You can see at the top of the page that the materials for PSYC/BIOL 3506 (Neuropharmacology) and PSYC 3256 (Design and Analysis 1) are available. This includes the notes and of course the outlines. Enjoy.... (If you are not in my classes this will be of little interest to you....)
My old friend, Dave Mumby of Concordia University, visited Algoma a couple of weeks back and gave a talk about getting in to grad school. Dave is well suited for this, as he has written a book about the subject, which is entering its second edition. You may recognize Dave from such blog posts as this one about peer review here on my blog.
I have recomended Dave's book, Graduate School, Winning Strategies For Getting In to a number of students over the years becuase it is simply the best resource out there dealing with the application (and hopefully acceptance) process.
Music “First Semester Freedom Fighter” by Hell or Highwater
(The audio was originally posted at my psych class podcast blog).
A few years ago, 2005 to be exact, Isabelle and I had a podcast called Broca's Area. We went through a couple of format changes etc but we had fun. We packed it in back in 2009. We resurrected the show for the first Canadian National Day of Podcasting (Dec 1, 2010). Well, it is December 1, 2011, so we are back. Now, I would love to get back into doing this show, but that is another matter.
We talked about the economy, war and peace, and the idea that Isabelle will either end up becoming an old woman who plays bingo or a wonk in Tibet....
We hope you enjoy the episode (which you can download directly here). Leave a comment!
Spit and Twitches: The Animal Cognition Podcast - Episode 2, The Hippocampus and Recognition Memory with Dave Mumby
I have known Dave Mumby for about 22 years now. We first met at some conference or another when we were both graduate students. We are now, however, much older.... Over the years we have kept an eye on each others' research and have even threatened to work together some day. Dave's work has focussed on a number of areas, but he has arguably received the most attention for his work on the role od the hippocampus and other limbic regions in recognition memory. We of course talked research, and we also had the questions that he did not expect, including the obligitory Ron Wiesman athletic question.... Thanks a lot for sitting down with me Dave.
I appeared yesterday on the great TWiT.tv video podcast Futures in Biotech. Rather than rant on about it, I thought I would post the video here. I was cohosting with regular host, Marc Pelletier. We interviewed neuroscientist Adam Gazzaley. We talked about Adam's work on the neural basis of distraction and how to train people not to be distracted using video games, it was great stuff.
(I wanted to call the episode 'Cogito, Ergo, Pwn' alas, I had no support...)
