Allen L. Edwards Public Lectureship in Psychology

Every year, we are able to offer for free, a public series that is made possible by a generous bequest from Professor Allen L. Edwards.  The theme of the 2010 Psychology Department Edwards Public Lectures (held in February and March) was the Development of Behavior. This series explored the development of our understanding of the relationships between our actions and our goals, how birdsong relates to language and learning mechanisms in humans, and how family and social factors associated with adversity shape brain development and subsequent behavioral adjustments. These lectures were video-streamed live for the first time. If you missed these extraordinary lectures, you can still view them on line at UWTV (http://uwtv.org/about/access.asp), the Research Channel (RC) (http://www.researchchannel.com/prog/pacific.asp#wa),or you can download the podcasts (http://uwtv.org/index.aspx)to view them at your convenience.
