We are pleased to announce that the fifth annual Bay Area Memory Meeting (BAMM) will be held on Monday, August 25th at the Center for Mind and Brain at UC Davis. 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), valley (UC Davis), and beyond (UC Irvine). 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.
