Cognitive Brown Bag Lunch

Now entering its fourth decade, the Cognitive Lunch Brown Bag series began in 1970 when cognitive psychology faculty members began congregating over lunch to discuss research. The series has grown into a long-standing tradition featuring guest speakers as well as graduate student research.

These events are open to the public. Fall 2010 "Cog Lunches" will be held in room ACB 214 (Academic Computing Building, 123 East 8th Street, Claremont 91711) from 12:15 to 1:30 pm, unless marked otherwise below.

Lunch will be provided at all noon talks.
