Stanford University

We are pleased to announce that the third annual Bay Area Memory Meeting (BAMM!) will be held on Saturday, August 26th at the Clark Center at Stanford University. BAMM! brings together investigators studying memory and cognitive control from the peninsula (Stanford & UC Santa Cruz), city (UCSF), east bay (UC Berkeley and Martinez VA), and valley (UC Davis). This year's BAMM! may also include labs from Southern California. The objectives of BAMM! are to:
     (1) foster communication and an exchange of ideas between scientists in the bay area who study memory and cognitive control, and
     (2) provide a forum in which students and postdocs can present their research and build relationships with faculty and peers beyond their local institution.

Hosting of BAMM! will rotate annually, providing an additional opportunity for researchers to visit the various labs in the area.
