Blogging SfN2010

Exciting news (from my perspective): the Stanford Neuroblog has been selected as an official Neuroblog for the 2010 Society for Neuroscience meeting!

The announcement was posted online this morning, and is available at the SfN Interactive website.

During the course of the meeting, at least one post per day will be published, generally covering topics of cognition and behavior, but aiming to highlight new/interesting research in a variety of fields. New posts will be announced via twitter, using the @stanfordneuro handle.

For new visitors drawn to the Stanford Neuroblog from the SfN announcement, welcome! For more information about who is responsible for the content of this blog, please visit the About page (link at right).
