Good afternoon all,

I am sharing a post for an upcoming virtual Neuro conference that you or your students might be interested in attending.  As Kent State is only 45 minutes from Wooster, I have bused my students to this symposium for the last several years, with very positive results.  This year the format is very different, with many different topics and short (15-min) talks, rather than one theme and 5 or 6, hour long addresses – which, I think might increase the impact on undergrads.

 

There is also an opportunity for students to get some PD on scientific rigor and careers beyond the bench, and/or to submit their own research for a poster presentation (by Monday the 28th).

 

Hope some of you choose to attend and share it with your students.

 

I hope you are all well and having as good a semester as Fall 2020 can offer you,
Amy Jo
