Friday October 14, 2016

The Center for Neurodynamics is excited to announce that we will be hosting the first UMSL Neuroscience Research Showcase on Friday, October 14, 2016. We hope you can join us! 

The event will begin at noon with a talk by Erik Herzog from Washington University, in the Weinman Auditorium on the UMSL South Campus. For those of you who are not familiar with his work, Erik studies circadian clocks; his talk should be fascinating for everyone from seasoned neuroscientists to undergraduate students who are just curious to learn about the field.

After Erik's talk, we will adjourn to the spectacular new lobby of the Optometry Clinic building (on Natural Bridge) for a poster session (1:30 to ~3:30). We invite all UMSL faculty and graduate students involved in neuroscience research to submit poster titles here: 


The deadline for submission is Friday September 30. Posters can be "recycled" from previous conferences, or could even be very informal descriptions of planned future research. The idea is simply to provide a venue for the neuroscientists on the UMSL campus to come together to share their research in an informal setting. Easels will be provided.

Undergraduates are welcome as first authors on posters, though we ask that their faculty mentors submit the poster information online for them. 

The poster session will also feature tables with information about UMSL's Neuroscience Certificate, the Behavioral Neuroscience Program in the Department of Psychological Sciences, and other information about neuro-related work at UMSL.

Delicious snacks will be provided, of course.

Stay tuned for further updates as we get closer to the event!

Remembering Frank Moss (1934-2011)

Frank Moss

The Center for Neurodynamics, the UMSL community, and many scientists throughout the world continue to mourn the loss of Frank Moss. January 4, 2016 marked the fifth anniversary of his death, and his friends and colleagues still find it difficult to wrap their minds around the idea that he is gone.

This past year has seen several international workshops held in Frank’s honor. A special Focus Issue of the journal Chaos appeared in December 2011, dedicated to Frank, and collecting a wide range of papers in the field of complex stochastic dynamics in biology, which he helped to found.
