    I Need a Roommate

    Hi, Boniface! May I have your email please?
  6. I booked a room with 2 double beds at the Swissotel Chicago for 179/night. Would love to be able to split that with someone. Please email me at psg35@georgetown.edu if interested. Thanks! Phil

    This webinar is exclusive for SfN members. Please log in or link your FENs membership for access. All living organisms are able to implement adaptation mechanisms that allow them to survive even in the most extreme conditions. Cerebral ischemia represents an extreme condition in which CNS cells are called upon to automate adaptations that ensure survival. This concept is exemplified and perfectly reproduced in the tolerance induced by the phenomena of ischemic conditioning. Ischemic conditioning is used to group together a few different stressors or interventions able to confer resistance to a deleterious brain event as an adaptive biological process. Ischemic conditioning through the exposure to a sub-threshold insult as above mentioned, can confer neuroprotection both if conditioning stimuli is applied before, as preconditioning stimulus, or if it is delivered after the harmful ischemia, as occurs in postconditioning. Over the years, several molecular pathways have been proposed as plausible mechanisms to explain the adaptive phenomena induced by hypoxia. This webinar will discuss mechanisms involved in post-ischemic brain adaptation . The knowledge of these mechanisms may provide information to bring light on those molecular pathways involved in brain protection. In this webinar, speakers will cover points including: Post-ischemic brain remodeling and plasticity, evaluating pathomechanisms contributing to secondary brain injury and searching strategies that promote neurological recovery in the post-acute stroke phase. What the function of peripheral events in inducing brain tolerance to stroke. The plethora of factors that can influence the tolerance phenomenon occurring during pre- and post-conditioning Why it is important to escape a neuron-centric view and to consider the role of other cell types, including small vessels, in the mechanism of brain adaptation.

  16. To assist with selecting a roommate and making lodging arrangements, here's a of questions you might want to discuss with potential roommates: Do you snore? Do you smoke or do you require a non-smoking room? Do you go to bed early or stay up late? Do you have any special requirements or needs? Who will make reservations with the hotel? What type of room will you choose? How will the cost of the room be divided among each guest? Who will confirm billing arrangements with the hotel? Who will provide a credit card upon checking in? Will you block incidentals from the room, require cash payment for room service and other hotel services? As this list does not provide a comprehensive set of questions addressing every aspect of shared lodging, users are responsible for considering questions that address concerns specific to each individual. Please note that it is not SfN's responsibility to address these issues and ensure any arrangements resulting from use of this forum are adhered to.

  18. SfN enthusiastically announces that Neuroscience 2021 will be held in an inclusive hybrid format. Neuroscience 2021 is one annual meeting with two experiences: for the first time, a four-day full virtual program (November 8-11, 2021) including reimagined virtual posters, and a four-day full in-person program in Chicago at McCormick Place Convention Center (November 13–16, 2021). “We look forward to finally celebrating SfN’s 50th annual meeting with our colleagues, both in person or online. The past year has underscored the importance of science, and I encourage everyone to consider submitting their abstracts to this meeting,” SfN President Barry Everitt said. “The SfN Council felt it is vital to gather the field to conduct the dynamic scientific exchange that has been sorely missing in the past year. By offering engagement both virtually and in person, we are able to share science as well as offer opportunities to network and gather for those who are ready and able to travel in person.” Knowing travel may continue to be restricted and uncertain, and wishing SfN to be as accessible and inclusive as possible, the addition of a full virtual schedule will enhance participation and promote SfN’s commitment to advancing scientific exchange globally. “To once again conduct our vibrant Annual Meeting is simply critical to the continued progress of the field and led to the unanimous decision by the SfN Council to make the 2021 meeting a hybrid opportunity,” Everitt said. Registration for Neuroscience 2021 will include full access to both the in-person and virtual portions of the meeting. All poster presenters will submit virtual posters regardless of whether they will also present in person. Abstract submissions from across the world are highly encouraged. “The Annual Meeting Focus Group, led by the Program Committee Chairs, has rethought the digital experience, specifically virtual posters, and we are looking forward to inventive and creative engagement to allow the largest group possible to participate in scientific exchange worldwide,” Everitt said. To encourage dynamic scientific exchange, each virtual poster presentation will include a live, interactive 60-minute group discussion with 7-10 authors in an assigned session during the virtual experience in November. All poster presenters will be asked to include a PDF slide deck and also record a five-minute video or audio presentation for their virtual poster. “The reimagining of the virtual posters invigorates a part of the program that has proven especially challenging in a virtual format,” said 2020–2021 SfN Program Chair Sheena Josselyn. “By creating up to 1,000 live online discussions among those with related research, we are looking to expand digital networking and collaboration opportunities within the field, in addition to the rich networking and discussion that will take place in person in Chicago. I encourage all members of the field around the world to consider submitting an abstract and connecting with colleagues new and old, as we are confident that this opportunity will serve to enhance robust scientific collaboration.” Abstract submission opens July 6 and closes July 15 – regardless of whether attendance will be virtual or in person. Meeting registration opens August 3 for members that renewed by February 15, August 4 for the full membership, and August 9 for nonmembers. More details are available on www.sfn.org/neuroscience2021.

    Original air date: April 7, 2021 12:00 - 1:00 PM ET More details about viewing this webinar are available on Neuronline. Poor mental health among academics and researchers has long been a problematic and pervasive issue but, until recently, it has largely been ignored or even denied. Recent research (Evans 2018, Woolston 2019) and the increased pressure of the COVID19 pandemic, however, have rendered mental health in academia an urgent topic. Dragonfly Mental Health, a nonprofit dedicated to cultivating excellent mental health among academics worldwide, will lead a webinar that aims to destigmatize mental health struggles among SfN members, discuss the prevalence and manifestation of various mental illnesses among neuroscientists, and start the conversation about how we as a community can better support ourselves and each other.

Thousands of non-coding (nc)RNAs have been identified with functions in processes, such as translation regulation and RNA processing. Different classes of ncRNAs exist, including microRNAs, circRNAs and tRNAs, some of which are enriched in the nervous system and neural cells. This webinar will discuss some of the functions of these ncRNAs in the developing and adult brain and highlights how their deregulation contributes to brain trauma and disease.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges worldwide and has affected neuroscientists at all career stages. Neuroscientists who are actively looking for a postdoctoral fellowship or faculty position are facing hiring freezes and uncertainty. During this webinar, panelists based in academia and industry will highlight the challenges the pandemic has created for neuroscience employers and job seekers and provide job seekers with strategies for finding and applying for jobs at this time. Recent graduates, postdoctoral fellows, and early- and mid-career neuroscientists who are looking for a position in academia or industry are encouraged to attend.
