Lynn Nadel Lynn Nadel (born 12 November 1942) is the Regents' Professor of psychology at the University of Arizona. Nadel specializes in memory, and has investigated the role of the hippocampus in memory formation. Together with John O'Keefe, he coauthored the influential 1978 book The Hippocampus as a Cognitive Map, which defended the [...]
Two prestigious scientists were proposed as new honorary members: John O'Keefe and Lynn Nadel. Their contribution to the field of cognitive neuroscience was considerable, in particular through the publication, in 1978, of their theory of the hippocampus as a cognitive map. Both were appointed unanimously and EBBS is proud to welcome them as honorary members.
"A special lecture by Wolfram Schultz at FENS: During the FENS meeting, Wolfram Schultz (Cambridge, UK) gave a special lecture on 'The economic utility signal of dopamine neurons. The lecture was promoted by both EBBS and the Behavioural Brain Research Prize.” Wolfram Schultz "At FENS in Copenhagen, EBBS organized a convivial meeting around [...]
EBBS organized jointly with EMCCS (European Molecular and Cellular Cognition Society) its first joint Meeting at FENS in Copenhagen on June 30th and July 1st. The meeting, which surveyed recent discoveries in the field of molecular and cellular cognition, was a great success with more than 110 participants.
