Joint Neuroscience Colloquia

Each Monday afternoon, the NYU neuroscience community gathers for a seminar series that features distinguished speakers from around the world. NYU’s Center for Neural Science and neuroscience groups within NYU Langone have jointly sponsored this venture for more than a decade (see a list of past speakers), and it has become the keystone for building collaborations across the university, as well as broadening our trainees’ view of the field.

Seminars alternate between NYU Langone (uptown) and NYU’s campus at Washington Square (downtown). Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our colloquia seminars will continue virtually until further notice. All seminars are conducted via Zoom and links will be emailed to the neuroscience community. See our events calendar to learn more.

If you have questions about our seminars, email Rihan Hassad, MPH, senior project coordinator, Neuroscience Institute, at
