Stanford University, Palo Alto

We are pleased to announce that the seventh annual Bay Area Memory Meeting (BAMM) will be held on Tuesday, August 17th at Stanford Campus. 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.

Adam Gazzaley, Charan Ranganath, Art Shimamura, Anthony Wagner, Andy Yonelinas

Schedule: BAMM 2010 is expected to include approximately 35 presentations from 15+ bay area labs (for a listing of previous meetings see http://www.stanford.edu/group/memorylab/BAMM/Bamm.html).  All sessions are intended to provide an engaging environment in which students and postdocs can present their work.  The content of the presentations is flexible, and can cover any studies relevant to the functional and neural organization of memory and cognitive control.
