interested in soliciting participants to present posters with special
emphasis on the following countries:
France, Italy, UK, Belgium, Greece, Turkey, Portugal, Iceland,
Luxembourg, and Norway.

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
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
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.
