Off to Washington DC!

I'm off for the Society for Neuroscience meeting! This is the big annual meeting for our field - basically Carnival for brain geeks. This year it's in Washington, D.C. and will have around 25,000 people. It's a week of posters, talks, and technical exhibits. It was also in Washington in 1986, the first one I ever attended. It's where I first got to see the whole sweep of neuroscience research.

In addition to the research, this year I'm co-hosting a discussion on Sunday evening on "How To Write About Brain Science For The Public." With me will be Dan Levitin, author of This Is Your Brain On Music. The event is open to everyone, not just scientists. Come join Dan and me!

Where: Renaissance Washington DC Hotel, Washington DC - Main Auditorium
When: Sunday, November 16th - 6:30 pm
Here's the postcard.
