Seminar series organized by students

We continued our highly successful evening dinner seminar series in which faculty and senior researchers at Stanford and other regional institutions present work at the interface of experimental and computational neuroscience. The series is organized entirely by the students, who canvas the community for speaker suggestions, and also includes 2-3 lectures by national or international scientists visiting the area each year. After each seminar students and IGERT PI McClelland gather with the speaker over dinner for a broader discussion of the presenter's research ideas. Presenters from out of town also meet during the day with a group of students for lunch and have 1-1 meetings with trainees and relevant faculty.
