CBS Journal Club

Sponsored by Harvard's Center for Brain Science, we have formed the Brains, Behavior, Computation and Thought Journal Club where graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in CBS laboratories have a forum to discuss key papers in neuroscience. Sign up and more information can be found here
