Division of Neurobiology (DNB): 2006 Fall Newsletter

Message from the Program Officer

Rich Satterlie

Greetings to all Division Members, and happy holidays in advance. The annual meeting is coming up fast, and we have some exciting presentations planned. Our Recent Developments in Neurobiology symposium will go again, this time honoring Regents' Professor Emeritus Douglas G. Stuart (Department of Physiology, University of Arizona) for his contributions to the neural control of locomotion, and to motor control in general. Professor Stuart was (and is) an important nucleator of neuroscience in the state of Arizona. We will have our usual piggy-back presentations by: myself and Dr. Tom Pirtle (Abilene Christian University), Keir Pearson and David McVea (University of Alberta), Rick Levine (University of Arizona) and Carsten Duch (Arizona State Unviersity), Roger Enoka and Ben Barry (University of Colorado), Arthur Prochazka and Sergiy Yakovenko (University of Alberta), and of course, Doug Stuart. The symposium will be on Saturday, January 6th, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. In addition, there will be some related posters that afternoon/evening, and we will have a division social prior to the society-wide social. Other contributed paper sessions of interest include: Thursday (4th) morning - Sensory Biology I and II; Friday (5th) morning - Neurobiology and Sensory Biology III; A few talks on Sunday (7th) morning.

The division will also elect new officers in the spring. If you are interested in running for division chair, program officer, or secretary or if you wish to nominate someone, please contact me.

I hope to see you in Phoenix. You'll enjoy the downtown hotel, and the brand new convention center right across the street, and some nice evening diversions within walking distance.
