Members of the GRSNC organize each year a large variety of scientific seminars in collaboration with the departments, faculties and schools to which it’s members are affiliated. Many of these seminars are organized together with the department of neurosciences of the faculty of medicine (on Fridays, at noon, in room 1120 of the Paul-G.-Desmarais pavillion). Others are organized with the department of pharmacology and physiology (on Thursdays, at 9AM, in room N-425-3 of the Roger-Gaudry building), the faculty of pharmacy or the faculty of dentistry. The list below includes seminars in these different milieus, and also some others, organized at other places on the campus of the Université de Montréal, notably at the School of Optometry (on Mondays at 12:15, 3744 Jean-Brillant, auditorium 104) .
