The 2023 Southern California Learning and Memory Symposium:
March 9, 2023, in the NRB building auditorium at UCLA!
A yearly meeting primarily for Southern California laboratories interested in plasticity and learning. Everyone is invited, and attendance is free. It is designed to promote collaborations and interactions between the many outstanding laboratories working in this field in Southern California. It is also a valuable resource for students and post-doctoral fellows interested since it provides an opportunity for them to be exposed to the breath and richness of our learning and memory community. To register please send an email to mfanselow#gmail.com.
The 2023 Southern California Learning and Memory Symposium will take place on Thursday, March 9, 2023 (please, mark your calendars) in the NRB building auditorium at UCLA!
