Make plans to attend the Neuroscience Cafe series brought to you by the Comprehensive Neuroscience Center and local libraries!

Join us as UAB experts in the neurosciences present topics, create discussion, and answer questions from the community. Check the tabs below for the upcoming schedule.

Contact Madison at for more information.

After discussions surrounding COVID-19 and following suit with UAB restrictions, all March, April, and May Neuroscience Cafes have been canceled. We plan to be back in the Fall. Thank you for understanding.
