Description:

The first "WCBR" was organized by neuroscientists from UCLA and was held at the University of California conference center near Lake Tahoe in 1968. There were ~60 attendees, and the meeting was oriented mostly towards behavioral neuroscience and electrophysiological recording. Now our meeting includes ~500 neuroscientists from all over the world who work in a wide variety of fields. The format includes over 80 posters and 84 panels and workshops. The aim of panels is for experts in a specific field to provide a broad overview for a general audience. Workshops are more focused and are aimed at discussing specific issues in a given field. Posters represent an individual's scientific contributions. The meeting provides a unique opportunity for you to catch up on new developments in fields outside your own, meet and interact with long-time colleagues, and develop new collaborations in a casual setting.

The week begins on Saturday night with the opening reception. The opening breakfast on Sunday features a Keynote speaker, who will be announced shortly. All participants are expected to stay for the duration of the conference.
