21st Annual Spring Brain Conference
SBC will be held at the Omni Hotel in Tucson, AZ, March 17-20, 2010.
The goal is to stimulate
neuroscientists to share ideas across broad areas of neuroscience. The
primary objective of each session should be to introduce the audience to

research areas and new findings. The program will include a dozen
non-competing plenary sessions, plenary lectures by leading scientists,
and a poster session. Scientific outreach to underserved students in
local schools and their communities will precede the meeting.

Scientific sessions are planned for 7:00 am to Noon (3/18-20). The
opening reception and poster session will be held on the evening of
3/17; the annual SBC banquet and plenary lecture(s) will be held on
