Neuroscience 2011, Washington D.C.

We had four research posters and two official neurobloggers at Neuroscience 2011 in Washington, D.C. The conference was from November 12th to November 16th.

Official Neuroscience 2011 Neurobloggers

Our own Rim Khazall and Harry MacKay, PhD students, were selected as official neurobloggers for Neuroscience 2011 in Washington, D.C. from November 12th to November 16th. Blog posts were put up live on their Neurobites blog during the conference, and Rim, as usual, made regular tweets to their Twitter feed.
