Psychobiology Annual Scientific Meeting 2018

Wednesday 5th September - Friday 7th September at Low Wood Bay Hotel, Windermere

Psychobiology describes the interaction between biological systems and behaviour. Psychobiologists research how psychological factors like cognition, mood and appraisal combine with biological events like stress physiology, changes in brain function, and pharmacological effects, to shape the human experience. Striving to understand psychological and biological interactions provides psychobiology with a unique perspective on humanity.

The British Psychological Society Psychobiology Section Annual Scientific Meeting features:

  • Outstanding guest lecturers: Professor John Cryan (University College Cork) and Dr Sarah Garfinkel (University of Sussex)
  • Non-parallel oral and poster sessions so your research gets heard
  • Two free places for postgraduate students (includes registration and accommodation)
  • One free undergraduate student place via the undergraduate project prize (includes registration and accommodation). Sponsored by Stratech Scientific Ltd.
  • Conference meal, late bar and entertainment on Thursday 6th September

We welcome old friends and new acquaintances at the 2018 Psychobiology Section Annual Scientific Meeting.
