Baycrest, birds & the brain

Baycrest Hospital is looking for TFN members to participate in a fascinating study that examines how experience with bird identification reshapes the brain’s visual system and changes memory and attention. The two-session study is open to members interested “in biology/nature/classification but don’t have a specialized bird-related background”. It offers a flexible schedule and compensation for time/travel.

If you’re interested, just reach out to ewing@research.baycrest.org and tell them you’re a TFN member.

The Toronto Field Naturalists wish to acknowledge this land through which we walk. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississauga of the Credit River. Today it is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to be on this land.
