University of California, Berkeley

We are pleased to announce that the eighth annual Bay Area Memory Meeting (BAMM) will be held on Tuesday, August 23rd at University of California, Berkeley. 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 (e.g. UC Irvine; UC Santa Barbara). 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.

Organizing Committee

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

Schedule: BAMM 2011 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.

Registration: A registration and abstract submission form is provided below. Please complete the form and email it to Art Shimamura (aps at berkeley dot edu).  In addition, please print out a hard copy of the completed form and mail it along with a check for the $30 registration fee payable to Arhur Shimamura at the following address (please be prompt, as we need to use these funds in advance to reserve a room and lunch):
