Hot Hits: Recapping Brainwaves' Highlights

AUTHOR: The BrainWaves Team

In honour of BrainWaves’ second birthday, our editor Justin Balsor is working hard to archive our newsletters and make every BrainWaves’ article past and present accessible for your viewing anytime you’d like! Don’t know where to start? We’ve picked three articles from our January & May 2016 editions that we’d like to suggest:


        1. Baking A Thesis by Dr. Kathryn Murphy (January 2016)

        Read along as MiNDS Program Director Dr. Kathryn Murphy provides advice on how to approach and “bake” a thesis just as you would         a wedding cake (and be inspired to grab a sweet treat, too!).
