Learning and Memory 2018

In celebration of the 35th anniversary of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory at UC Irvine, we will be hosting a major international conference on the neurobiology of learning and memory.

Participate

We are now accepting submissions for symposia, open paper talks, lightning talks and posters and will continue to do so until September 1, 2017. Since space is limited, priority will be given to earlier submissions.

Highlighted Speakers

Note: Professor Howard Eichenbaum, memory research pioneer, dear friend, and long-time colleague passed away on July 21, 2017 following spinal surgery. We are profoundly saddened by this tremendous loss and wish his family, friends and colleagues take comfort in knowing he was well loved, appreciated and deeply respected within the scientific community. Professor Eichenbaum was one of the first to confirm his participation as a plenary speaker in the conference and we will do our best to honor his memory at the conference itself. More details will be forthcoming.

Keynote Speaker

Edvard Moser

Director, Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience
NTNU, Trondheim, Norway

Edvard Moser is a professor of neuroscience and director of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience in Trondheim. He is interested in how spatial location and spatial memory are computed in the brain. His work, conducted with May-Britt Moser as a long-term collaborator, includes the discovery of grid cells in the entorhinal cortex, which provides the first clues to a neural mechanism for the metric of spatial mapping.

He shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2014 with May-Britt Moser and John O'Keefe for their work identifying the cells that make up the brain's positioning system.
