Virtual Evenings to Remember

Friends of the CNLM are invited to join us for our 2020/21 Virtual Evenings to Remember. Meet some of the CNLM's newest faculty fellows, hear their stories, and ask your learning and memory questions to our expert faculty panels.

The evenings follow two formats:

Big Idea Talks - Big idea evenings feature one CNLM Fellow who will give a 15-20 minute TED-style talk. Discover each speaker's story, passion, and science in this virtual format with plenty of time to discuss ideas with the presenter. This is a great opportunity to meet the scientists at UCI and to connect with other Friends of the CNLM.

Panel Discussion -The panel discussion evenings feature three CNLM Fellows who study a topic from different perspectives. These evenings will spark exciting conversations and provide a fun interactive experience with learning and memory experts..
