Psychology seminars to stimulate thought

Seminar speaker A new series of research seminars will reflect the growth in Psychology at BU.

Our thought-provoking psychology seminar series kicks off on Thursday 1 November with a guest lecture from Professor Michael Eysenck.

Professor Eysenck, from the University of London, opens the series with his 'Anxiety, Attention and Performance' seminar.

Our own Professor McDougall, who heads our Psychology Group in the School of Design, Engineering and Computing, will present her seminar on ‘Sense and signability: accessing meaning from icons and symbols.’

She said: "The quality of speakers for the series and the range of topics they will cover – from biometrics and forensics to ecopsychology – present an excellent way of creating further interest in psychology."

"The series reflects the current growth in Psychology at Bournemouth and follows the arrival of students to undertake our new undergraduate degree in Psychology just a few weeks ago."
