The Synapses Journal Club explores recent publications in the area of neuroscience and physiology with a focus at the neuronal synapse and its function. Our general topic will be “Synapses and disease” which has been a hit in previous semesters, though if someone finds a great paper, absolutely any synapse topic will be welcomed. This year the journal club will take the 2nd and 3rd Fridays of the month at 10:00 am in the Biotechnology Conference Room (Second Floor, Biotech Building)so we do not conflict with the Metabolism or GPCR clubs.

Our new Synapses website can be found at the Office of Neuroscience Research.
