We invite you Ear2Brain, a new talk series generously supported as a collaboration cluster by the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition.

Ear2Brain aspires to connect those with interests in auditory science in Pittsburgh.  

Open to all, we welcome the ‘auditory curious’ as well as those working to understand the perceptual, cognitive, computational, clinical and neurobiological bases of audition. Join us the first Monday of each month 3-5pm for a broadly accessible talk by a local researcher or an invited guest followed by interaction over beverages and snacks.
