Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour (PNB) Graduate Program HANDBOOK (it's going to be good!)
This Wiki version of the PNB Graduate Handbook was started in April 2018, with a small group of editors. We will be adding lots of information over the next few weeks. If you would like to join our editing group, let us know!
PNB Graduate Handbook LOGO competition: It's a small thing, but this Wiki needs a logo. Do you have artistic talents? Are you interested in submitting an entry to our logo competition? The logo should be something that represents the research by graduate students in PNB. My first attempt is the human brain you see in the top left corner - but that is rather predictable, right? Do you have a better idea, or a better interpretation of a stylistic brain? It is challenging because the logo is expected to be 135 x 135 pixels, simple, eye-catching, and representative of PNB.
Official sources of information about our graduate program are the McMaster Graduate Calendar (2017-18), the (McMaster University Policies, Procedures & Guidelines), and the PNB department policies. If there is a difference between official sources of information and information presented in the PNB Graduate Handbook, the official university documents should be taken as correct. If you need any clarification on any of the guidelines and procedures, talk to the PNB Associate Chair (Graduate), aka Graduate Chair (Dr. Judith Shedden).
