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 and tell them you’re a TFN member.

Toronto Field Naturalists wishes to acknowledge this Land through which we walk. For thousands of years, the Land has been shared by the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinaabe. Toronto is situated on the Land within the Toronto Purchase, Treaty 13, the traditional and treaty Lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is also part of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum, a covenant agreement between Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Wendat peoples and allied nations to peaceably share the land and all its resources. Today, the Land is home to peoples of numerous nations. We are all grateful to have the opportunity to continue to care for and share the beauty of this Land.
