Welcome to Bridging Brains and Bioacoustics, a virtual seminar series that brings together early career researchers studying the neuroscience and ecology of animal sound.  We meet each month for two talks on a theme, ranging from musicality to machine learning across a wide array of species.


You can follow us on X/Twitter or Bluesky for talk announcements and links to join.


You can also contact us if you would like to receive updates via e-mail.

Next seminar: Thursday, June 27th @ 10:00 am EST
