Thirty-Ninth Annual Winter Conference
The Neurobiology of Learning & Memory

January 3-6, 2015
Park City Marriott Hotel
Park City, UT

The Thirty-Ninth Annual Neurobiology of Learning and Memory Conference is organized by Pamela Kennedy and Brock Kirwan together with Raymond Kesner, Sheri Mizumori, Aryeh Routtenberg, Craig Stark, Os Steward, and Wendy Suzuki, and is supported in part by the Department of Psychology, University of Utah. The sessions are organized so that one-half of the time will be available for discussion. There will be time-keepers who will make certain that the formal presentations do not extend beyond the allotted time. Furthermore, we will strongly encourage a limit of 5-7 slides and suggest that the first slide summarizes the "take home message."

Material presented at this meeting should not be cited in bibliographies. It should be treated as personal communication and should be cited as such only with consent of the author. For the Data Blitz session (only), please give the title, presenter, and ppt slide (no more than one slide) to Pamela Kennedy. If you would like to present at this session please send an email to Pamela Kennedy ( with the title of your presentation by December 1, 2014. A projector for power point slides presentations will be available. Data blitz slides should depict no more than FOUR pieces of data. This means 4 figures, plots, tables, images, diagrams, etc. While the best slide format should only have a ONE data point to convey, additional background data or control experiments sometimes necessitate additional figures or plots and thus the "4-to-a-slide" rule. Animations are only allowed in so far as the slide content appears in order and to help convey the slide's data. Under no circumstances should animations be use to "scale" figures up and down such that more pieces of data can be accommodated on the slide. Data blitz slides that do not fit with these criteria will be returned to the presenter for editing.
