Save the Date! 2020 Allen L. Edwards Psychology Lectures

We were thrilled to have a packed house again for the 14th Annual Allen L. Edwards Psychology Lecture Series this past Spring. More than 1,000 members of our community joined us for an evening lecture by prominent UW psychologists and distinguished visiting scholars. 

  • Drs. Eliot Brenowitz of UW and Rene Hen of Columbia University explored nerogensis, the birth of new brain cells in adult birds and rodents. 
  • Drs. Jessica Sommerville of UW and Tamar Kushnir of Cornell University explained social learning from infancy through the preschool years, imparting helpful information for parenting and education. 

We hope to see you at next year's lectures on Wednesday, April 29 and Wednesday, May 6, 2020. Make sure that you are signed up for our event invites by subcribing to our biannual e-newsletter that includes faculty and student stories, recent achievements, and ways you can connect with the Psychology Department.
