BRAMS welcomes secondary students, in collaboration with project SEUR

Posted by: on Jul 1, 2009 | No Comments

BRAMS is happy to participate once again in project SEUR, by welcoming in early July three groups of Secondary students to visit the laboratory and to be introduced to leading questions addressed in our research centre.

SEUR project, “Sensibilisation aux études universitaires et à la recherche”, was set up by Université de Montréal in 2001, to increase 3rd, 4th and 5th year secondary students awareness of the numerous training and research opportunities offered here – and in the meantime help these pupils, coming from various educational backgrounds, in their career choice by showing them a wide variety of training and career possibilities.

BRAMS is pleased to collaborate in this major project, by welcoming three groups of thirty pupils to visit its premises, on July 8, 14 and 16. BRAMS students are presenting to the teenagers their respective research projects, as well as leading them through BRAMS for a dynamic visit, including several demonstrations and experiences – notably in electroencephalography (EEG), spatial hearing and Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). The teenagers will thus get an overview of the diversity of the research projects conducted at BRAMS and of current major issues in Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience.

BRAMS thanks its students for the organization of these visits – in particular William Aubé, Mariève Corbeil, Andreas Hintzen, Simon Lemieux, Pascale Lidji, Andréane McNally-Gagnon, Geneviève Mignault, Alexandra Nedelcu, Sébastien Paquette, Jessica Phillips-Silver and Isabelle Royal.
