Symposium on Brain Imaging and Vision

Monday 24 June 2002 :: Brunel University


The Centre for Cognition and Neuroimaging at Brunel University is hosting a one-day symposium on brain imaging and vision on Monday 24 June 2002.

It aims to bring together researchers in brain imaging and vision science from across the United Kingdom. 

The symposium is an open meeting and registration is free but mandatory. A buffet lunch and refreshments are included. 

The symposium will take place in the conference and banqueting suite, Brunel University, Uxbridge. For details on reaching Brunel see:


This is a Foursites event – bringing together vision research at Brunel, Reading, Royal Holloway and Surrey – so there will be a Foursites vision research poster session. This is open to all delegates wishing to report recent research in any area of vision science (not just brain imaging). A prize will be awarded for the best student poster. If you wish to present a poster, email the organisers with the poster title and abstract.
