Hello dear biologists!!
Study Together Session
Does studying for exams alone sound boring to you? Don't worry, ABO is here with another Study together session to make your exam week a bit more fun.
ello everyone! On the 11th of April, it is finally time for DIAFRAGMA’s spectacular Popquiz!!! It will take place at Hubert and the doors will open at 19:00.

Symposium "Back to the Future"
Hello everyone, it is time for Symci’s annual symposium!
This year we are back and better than ever! On the 13th of April, four wonderful speakers will give a lecture about their research connected to our theme ‘’Back to the Future’’.
We also have an amazing lunch and, to top it off, a lovely borrel organized by PRAC!
Dr. Sabine Gollner will give a lecture on deep sea mining and how this influences marine ecosystems. Dr. Michiel Pegtel will talk about exosomes and how cancer cells use this to communicate. Explaining novel methods that can even visualize exosome release from living cancer cells. Dr. Ian Cameron will give us a glimpse of the future in his lecture about the innovation of health technologies, in which he not only explains how new technologies get developed, but also touches on the requirements for these to be implemented. Our Back to the Future symposium wouldn’t be complete without some neon bioluminescence, and dr. Sander van der Krol will give a lecture about just that! He will discuss glowing plants and how they have captivated scientists’ interest, as well as discussing what it is good for.
You can sign up for the symposium with/without lunch by filling in this Google Form.
Please note: sign ups including lunch will close on the 10th of April!

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com
Talking faces: The contribution of conversational facial signals in language processing
Human communication critically rests on inferring the speaker’s communicative intent. In conversation, the most natural environment of language use, this has to happen extremely quickly, due to the fast-paced nature of speaking turn transitions. It is therefore essential to quickly understand the intended message to be able to plan a timely response. Since human face-to-face communication is inherently multimodal (consisting of speech along with visual signals), one hypothesis is that visual signals facilitate fast intent recognition. During this lecture, I will present results from research that aimed to study the contribution of visual signals of the face in language processing using corpus analyses and an experimental paradigm with VR. These results will hopefully convince you that conversational facial signals form a critical part of human communication.
Change Biologists Evening

These are questions that touch us deeply, and we all have our own experiences, good and bad. As Miss Piggy lamented after one of her many unanswered infatuations: “Only time can heal my broken heart, just as only time can heal your broken arms and legs." In this talk Prof. Bert Kappen from the Donders Institute will discuss these question using knowledge from human and animal studies.
Sounds like something you’d be interested in? Then join us on February 16th from 12:30 to 13:30 in room HG00.303 with free coffee and tea! Lunch will be 2€ and can be purchased in Wing 5, they will be available from the 6th to the 10th of February!
