Advances and Perspectives in Auditory Neuroscience (APAN)

Sponsored by TDT and NIDCD-NIH


Satellite Symposium at the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting

This annual symposium is to facilitate the growth of auditory neurophysiology research in awake and behaving preparations, provide an opportunity for researchers to discuss issues of common interest, and share their latest findings. Those interested in giving an oral or poster presentation must submit an abstract (~250 words). We encourage the submission of abstracts by newly established investigators, postdocs and graduate students.

All poster presentations are accepted to this satellite meeting. Our Programming Committee will select those presentations that will be presented as short talks.
