The goal of this journal club is to keep all of us abreast of important developments in neuroscience research. Sessions take place every 2 weeks (or more frequently if announced). At each session, one lab/group takes responsibility for the Journal Club, and hosts it at their location. Grad students and postdocs are the target audience, but all are welcome.
