To members of the Columbia, Rockefeller and NYU neuroscience community:

We are pleased to announce the Neuroscience Symposium: “Memory, Mind and Mechanism: A Symposium in Honor of the Centenary of Brenda Milner,"  scheduled for Tuesday, December 11th, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Caspary Auditorium at The Rockefeller University.
This symposium will be the seventh in a series organized by the three Universities (The Rockefeller University, Columbia University, and New York University) to honor the centenary of legacy neuroscientists. The Milner Symposium coincides with the 100th anniversary of the birth of Brenda Milner, a pioneering figure in neuroscience, who discovered the central role of the hippocampus in memory.  The symposium will provide a current view of areas of neuroscience most directly connected to Milner’s work, including memory representation, molecular and cellular mechanisms of memory and disease, and hippocampal information coding.
The confirmed speakers are as follows:
Elizabeth Buffalo (University of Washington)
Rosa Cossart (INMED – Institut de neurobiologie de la meditérranée)
Daniel Dombeck (Northwestern University)
Jeffrey Magee (HHMI Janelia Research Campus)
Kelsey Martin (University of California, Los Angeles)
Michael Posner (University of Oregon)
John O’Keefe (University College London)
Marcus Raichle (Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine)
Daniel Schacter (Harvard University)
Erin Schuman (Max Planck Institute for Brain Research)
Larry Squire (University of California, San Diego)
Huda Zoghbi (Baylor College of Medicine)

Please mark your calendars and plan to join us on December 11th!
