Seminar series: visiting Spanish researchers in Oxford

· Oxford

The third event of this seminar series of Spanish Scientists visiting Oxford took place last Monday, with Dr Rosario Rueda, from the department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Granada, as invited speaker.

Rosario presented a seminar about how childhood poverty could affect the neuro-cognitive development of babies, emphasising the current figures of childhood poverty in Spain.

The audience transmitted a deep interest in the subject by asking plenty of interesting and challenging questions to Dr Rueda. At the same time, the speaker reported that the opportunity to take part in this event was a fantastic experience, since talking to a different audience also provides new points of view.

The talk was followed by an improvised dinner in the same pub where the talk was organised, generating a friendly and relaxed atmosphere to continue the discussion.
