Program highlights from the upcoming meeting of the American Physiological Society
Date:3/19/2013

BETHESDA, Md. (March 18, 2013)The American Physiological Society (APS) is one of six scientific societies sponsoring the meeting Experimental Biology 2013 (EB 2013), being held April 20-24, 2013 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC), in Boston, Mass. The APS has programmed some 2,700 scientific abstracts for this year's meeting and dozens of symposia. Program highlights, with times and locations include:

Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine Lecture:

Unraveling Smell: How are we able to differentiate between smells? How does the brain remember them? Nobel Laureate Linda Buck, Ph.D., from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Wash., went looking for answers. In 2004 she, along with Richard Axel, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for work on olfactory receptors. Dr. Buck will deliver this year's Laureate lecture as part of the APS's annual meeting. (Wednesday, April 24, 4:45 p.m. Location: BCEC, 210BC)

New Experimental Approaches to Human Brain Function in Health and Disease:

The last decade has seen an explosion in discoveries about the brain. This symposium brings together four nationally recognized experts in brain research who approach a variety of human brain functions and disorders throughout the lifespan from: early brain development and the evolution of human cognition and its maldevelopment in idiopathic mental retardation; to how the human brain makes decisions in health and in diseases such as Parkinson's disease; to the analysis of neurotransmission and neuromodulation in adult psychiatric disease; to the study of cellular and signaling processes in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. (Sunday, April 21, 8 a.m. Location: BCEC, 208)

Eating Disorders:

The first cases of anorexia nervosa (AN) and bulimia nervosa (BN) were diagnosed more than 80 years ago; binge-eating disorder (BED) was first recorded in 1959. These most deadly of psych
