NYU Langone experts present at Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting

Experts from The Neuroscience Institute at NYU Langone Medical Center will present new research and participate in panel discussions at the Society for Neuroscience 41st Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, November 12-16, 2011.

"This meeting presents an opportunity for leading scientists from around the world to share research and discuss new avenues for treating diseases and conditions of the brain," said Richard Tsien, DPhil, the Druckenmiller Professor of Neuroscience and director of the Neuroscience Institute at NYU Langone Medical Center. "We are beginning to unravel the brain's mechanisms for building and sustaining the complex networks that weave cognition, memory, motor-function and experience into the fabric that not only define us as individuals, but as a society."

Experts from NYU Langone will be available for comment during the meeting in addition to participating in presentations, including:
