The NIH Neuroscience Seminar Series features lectures and discussions with leading neuroscientists. Sponsored by NINDS, NIMH, NIA, NIDCD, NIDA, NICHD, NEI, NIAAA, NIDCR, NHGRI and NCCIH, the series offers seminars on aspects of molecular, cellular, developmental and cognitive neuroscience as well as neuroscience related topics in disease, pain, and genetics.

Seminars are held on most Mondays from Noon to 1:00 pm (ET) in the Porter Neuroscience Bldg., room 620/630, on the NIH Bethesda Campus. Seminars will also be presented on Live Video-cast and then archived for future viewing.  Speakers will choose if they wish to have their seminar presented on Video-cast and archived, see address below.  Please contact the corresponding seminar host listed on the below schedule for requests to meet with a guest speaker following the seminar.

For additional information about the series and seminar details, please contact MaryCatherine Hellmuth (phone: 301-435-2232, email: marycatherine.hellmuth@nih.gov).
