Now, what the dickens does Key West have to do with modeling memory??

At least *I* can clain my trip to New Orleans in November as business, since
I'm going to the Society for Neuroscience meeting!  Or at least that's
what everybody thinks ;^)

On a more serious note, how do you model memory?  Are you trying to
model it on a cellular level, or in a more theoretical way?  I've dabbled
in the field a little, since I wrote a paper on how hippocampal neurons
are involved in mapping the outside world for a course last year.
