Winter Conference on Brain Research

The first "WCBR" was organized by neuroscientists from UCLA and was held at the University of California conference center near Lake Tahoe in 1968. There were ~60 attendees, and the meeting was oriented mostly towards behavioral neuroscience and electrophysiological recording. Now our meeting includes ~500 neuroscientists from all over the world who work in a wide variety of fields. The format includes over 80 posters and 84 panels and workshops. The aim of panels is for experts in a specific field to provide a broad overview for a general audience. Workshops are more focused and are aimed at discussing specific issues in a given field. Posters represent an individual's scientific contributions. The meeting provides a unique opportunity for you to catch up on new developments in fields outside your own, meet and interact with long-time colleagues, and develop new collaborations in a casual setting.
The week begins on Saturday night with the opening reception. The opening breakfast on Sunday features a Keynote speaker, Dr. David Linden,Johns Hopkins University. All participants are expected to stay for the duration of the conference.
