Held in April 2018 in celebration of the 35th Anniversary of the center, LEARNMEM2018 brought 1000 learning and memory scientists from around the world to Huntington Beach, CA to share their research, gain insight on their work, build new collaborations and advance our understanding of the brain. Over the next few weeks we will share all of the featured lectures in the order in which they were presented at the conference. The conference began with this 8am lecture by Dr. James L.
