A colleague in Texas has asked me to publicise this symposium as they
are looking for UK participants.


---------------------------------------------------------------
          NATO Advanced Research Workshop 
      Advances in Metabolic Mapping Techniques for 
   Brain Imaging of Behavioral and Learning Functions
 
November 7-9, 1991, Austin, Texas
 
Organized by F. Gonzalez-Lima, T. Finkenstaedt, and H. Scheich.
 
Dedicated in Honor of Louis Sokoloff 
 
 
 
This workshop will bring together world neuroscientists who are
pioneering the use of metabolic mapping techniques to elucidate
brain mechanisms of animal learning and behavior.  The invited
speakers will review state-of-the-art applications of these methods
in behavioral neuroscience.  Aspects of autoradiographic and
histochemical methods, with emphasis on 2-deoxyglucose
techniques, will be considered.  The opening speech will be by A.I.
Leshner, Acting Director, NIMH.  Although oral presentations will
be limited to the invited speakers, original contributions using brain
mapping techniques are solicited for poster sessions in the following
behavioral themes:
 
Modulation of sensorimotor systems by experience and behavior
 
Arousal and emotional components of learning and behavior
 
Cerebral representation of associative learning and memory
 
Authors should submit a single page abstract clearly stating their
results by July 15, 1991 to the Workshop Director at the address
listed below.
 
To stimulate involvement, all attendees are asked to stay for the
entire 3-day period.  No registration fee will be charged but most
participants will be responsible for their expenses.  Since
attendance will be limited to 40, participants will be selected from
applications addressed to the Workshop Director.
