Description

Workshop on Neuroscience and Dance

We will hold a small workshop to discuss recent research results in Neuroscience and Dance. This will include output from the group at Glasgow working on the AHRC funded Watching Dance Project (www.watchingdance.org) as well as guests. We hope to create an informal atmosphere to share ideas and discuss future research.  

 

There are limited spaces (though there is no charge) so please email frank.pollick@glasgow.ac.uk to reserve a space.
