Stanford Neuro at SfN 2015


Heading to Chicago for SfN? As you wander the halls of McCormick Place this week, be sure to check out some of these presentations by Stanford Neuro students. If you're not going, you can make your week more interesting (or make yourself jealous) by following along with PLOS Neuro's tweeters (including me!) or the #sfn15 hashtag. For more detailed coverage, check out articles by SfN's official meeting bloggers or the PLOS Neuro bloggers.
