CNLM Hebb Club

Named after Donald Olding Hebb, The Hebb Club is the CNLM's flagship biweekly journal club which provides a venue for discussing recent peer-reviewed publications on broad topics in learning and memory.  The Journal Club meets every other Thursday afternoon from 4-5pm in the Weinberger Conference Room. It is open to all CNLM Fellows and their labs as well as all UCI neuroscientists.

Participants are expected to be active and engaged, and are expected to have read the assigned paper(s).
