This week’s Journal Club is going to be qualification exam practice for Neuroscience 1st year students. Because of the QE policy, NO PI IS ALLOWED TO ATTEND, but we hope that postdocs/students/technicians can all come and give us precious feedback. The preliminary titles and presenters are listed above.

For inquiries contact Jiaxin (Cindy) Tu.

The Systems Journal Club will meet virtually via Zoom until further notice. For inquiries or to be added to the journal club list, contact Camillo Padoa-Schioppa or Larry Snyder (WashU Dept. of Neuroscience).

The Systems Journal Club has spirited discussions of recent systems neuroscience papers, covering sensory, motor and cognitive issues. In normal times, we meet at Noon on Fridays in the 3rd floor conference room of East McDonnell.
