SciTechEdit International is pleased to announce our support for the University of California Irvine International Conference on Learning and Memory to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning (CNLM). SciTechEdit International, a premier science editing company, will provide science communication support to attendees of the UC Irvine International Conference on Learning and Memory to be held at the Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach, CA April 18-22, 2018

This is a landmark internatioCNLM badge 35years 300x178nal conference on the neurobiology of learning and memory that is open to the entire international community of neuroscientists as well as interested community members. The founders of SciTechEdit International performed their graduate work at the CNLM and have attended most of the past CNLM learning and memory meetings. We have always found them to be extremely informative, leading edge, and well organized. In addition, the location of the meeting (Huntington Beach, CA) and the time (April 18-22, 2018) are excellent for enjoying all the amenities that southern California has to offer.

SciTechEdit International will be pleased to help conference attendees to prepare and polish their abstracts, posters, and talks.  We also offer an audio tape service to help non-native English attendees with English pronunciation. Attendees of the meeting can use the promotional code CNLM2018 to receive a 20% discount on Comprehensive Editing services applied to all conference materials. Moreover, abstracts submitted to the meeting will be edited by SciTechEdit International at no charge (click here)! Please contact us for more information and pricing.

The Brighfocus Foundation has provided three travel fellowships to be awarded in the amount of US$1500. SciTechEdit International is also sponsoring a travel award for a foreign scientist traveling from abroad to attend the meeting. Please click here for more details.

 

Keynote by:

edvard moser portait 100x100Edvard Moser, PhD
Edvard Moser is a professor of neuroscience and director of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience in Trondheim. He is interested in how spatial location and spatial memory are computed in the brain. His work, conducted with May-Britt Moser as a long-term collaborator, includes the discovery of grid cells in the entorhinal cortex, which provides the first clues to a neural mechanism for the metric of spatial mapping. He shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2014 with May-Britt Moser and John O’Keefe for their work identifying the cells that make up the brain’s positioning system.
