Preliminary Program for the second annual Neurobiology of Language Conference (NLC 2010)

Dear colleague,

We are delighted to announce that the Preliminary Program for the second annual Neurobiology of Language Conference (NLC 2010) is now available online! Visit our website to download a copy.

This year the Conference will feature poster and slide presentations as well as keynote presentations by Daniel Margoliash (The University of Chicago, US) and Karl Deisseroth (Stanford University, US). The conference will also include two panel discussions on controversial topics in the field of language neurobiology. The first panel will focus on the issue of the organization of semantic memory and feature talks by Alex Martin (National Institute of Mental Health, US) and Karalyn Patterson (University of Cambridge, UK). The other panel discussion will focus on the role of the visual word form area and feature talks by Cathy Price (Wellcome Trust Department of NeuroImaging, University College London, UK) and Stanislas Dehaene (Coll├Ęge de France, INSERM-CEA Cognitive Neuroimaging Unit, France).

A reminder that early Registration will be closing on July 30! For more information, visit website at

Are the debates gone or have they just been relabeled as "panel discussions?"
