Date:5/11/2010

ins, choreographer Mark Morris, and renowned magicians Apollo Robbins and Eric Mead.

SfN presidents also select four top lecturers for each year's meeting, reflecting specific areas of scientific interest. This year's Presidential Special Lectures, themed "Neuroscience from Molecules to Mind," reflect the diversity of the neuroscience field, from cellular to clinical applications:

  • Martin Chalfie, PhD Columbia University, 2008 recipient of Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Chalfie will address genetic factors involved in the development and function of touch.

  • Okihide Hikosaka, MD, PhD National Eye Institute. Hikosaka will speak on the neural circuits involved in motivation and behavior.

  • Pawan Sinha, PhD Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sinha, who helped launchProject Prakash, a humanitarian and scientific initiative to help provide sight to congenitally blind children with treatable illnesses, will provide insights into how people learn to see.

  • Helen S. Mayberg, MD, FRCPC Emory University School of Medicine. Mayberg will address new ideas about the origins of depression and discuss her pioneering research on deep brain stimulation as a treatment for depression.

More than 30,000 neuroscientists presenting 16,000 abstracts cutting across biological, behavioral, psychological, and chemical disciplines are expected to attend Neuroscience 2010. In addition to lectures, symposia, and poster sessions, Neuroscience 2010 hosts press conferences and a working press room. Several public events, on topics from autism to post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury research and treatment, will be held during the week and announced in coming weeks.
