CCBS Member Fall Retreat 


The Center for Cognitive and Brain Sciences hosts an annual Fall Retreat as an interactive forum intended to strengthen relationships among members across disciplines. The weekend includes faculty talks, a student poster session and reception, keynote speech, and more. The retreat encourages interdisciplinary discussions on research and the sharing of new ideas relating to the cognitive sciences to promote collaboration within the OSU scientific community.  The Retreat is open to all members - undergraduate, graduate, post-doc, and faculty alike.
