McMaster University will continue to host undergraduate academic activities remotely for the Spring/Summer/Intersession term with only a few exceptions for courses that need student access to specialized equipment.

Outreach and the Community

Hamilton Brain Bee
The Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour is proud to host the Annual Hamilton Brain Bee, a neuroscience challenge for high school students in the Hamilton-Halton area (including Ancaster, Burlington, Dundas, Grimsby, Hamilton, and Stoney Creek). During the competition, students demonstrate their knowledge about the brain and neuroscience, including fascinating topics like memory, stress, movement, addiction, sleep, and neurological disorders. Students in grades 9-12 are welcome, and registration is free!

LIVELab
The LIVELab is a 106-seat research-based performance theatre and testing centre. In addition to neuroscientific research, the LIVELab encourages creative use of technology in unique music and multi-media performances.

• The LIVELab Concert Series offers high quality artistic performances for the community and creates memorable one-of-a-kind showcases for local and national artists.
• The NeuroMusic Conference welcomes prominent international music cognition researchers to present their latest studies to an audience of psychologists, neuroscientists, musicians, educators, graduate and undergraduate students, and interested community members.
• Go behind the scenes at LIVELab! Free behind the scenes public tours for groups and individuals are offered by LIVELab students and staff throughout the year. Tours are held monthly and take approximately 45 minutes. Email for upcoming tour dates.
• The LABLab is also one of the featured events in ScienceRendezvous, a nationwide family festival that “takes science out of the lab and onto the street.” Check out the LIVELab's virtual Science Rendezvous page for some fun games related to Music and Movement!
