On the third day of CNS 2019 in San Francisco, attendees were treated to pipe cleaner neuron-making in the poster session (right), as well as some wonderful award talks. Receiving her Young Investigator Award, Muireann Irish of the University of Sydney discussed her work on semantic and episodic memory. And co-recipient of the award Michael Cole of Rutgers took participants through new approaches for mapping the brain’s networks. Giving his lecture for the Distinguished Career Contributions Award, Daniel Schacter (Harvard) presented to an audience (including his family) about how memory is an adaptive, constructive process that enables flexibility but is also vulnerable to mistakes. After the inspiring award talks, participants heard from an expert panel for the CNS Trainee Professional Development Panel. The morning was action-packed with symposia on mental models of time, age-related episodic memory decline, and trends in multimodal approaches and connectomics.
