Rationale

The purpose of these meetings is to encourage discussion of relevant and topical issues in neuroscience. Papers or review articles of general interest, demonstrating timely and important concepts in this field, which expand our understanding and raise new ideas in the field of neuroscience are particularly welcome.

Journal Club meets on Friday mornings at 9 am in the Norman Hackerman Building, NHB 3.202.

We encourage anyone who wants to join the Journal Club group to do so.

We have a mailing list for Journal Club announcements (which includes PDF files of papers to be discussed). To subscribe to this mailing list, go here.
