Synaptic Integration Seminar Series
The Synaptic Integration Seminar Series is organized by students, postdocs and young faculty at the NIH. We are interested in multiple aspects of brain function, including the cellular basis of synaptic transmission and plasticity, synaptic structure, neuronal network activity and development of synaptic connections, as well as novel techniques that can give insights into these topics. We host young investigators from across the country and encourage interactions with the local NIH scientific community.
We meet on Tue-Wed from 11:00 AM to noon in the seminar room in building 35. After each seminar, we meet together with the speakers for a lunch in building 35 cafeteria.
All are welcome!
