Abstract

In late spring a diverse group of scientists converged on the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory to meet and discuss the unwieldy, growing field of learning and memory research. The Learning and Memory meeting, held April 28–May 2, drew researchers in neurophysiology, behavior, computational neurobiology, cognitive psychology, and molecular biology, all eager to disseminate their particular points of view as well as to learn from colleagues they might otherwise rarely see. When encompassing a topic as broadly defined as “learning and memory”, one quickly realizes that no single approach or system predominates. The scientists at the meeting discussed operant conditioning in Aplysia, courtship conditioning inDrosophila, central pattern generators in invertebrates, motor learning in the cerebellum, and hippocampus-based memory in rats and primates, among other systems. Although it would be impossible to summarize all of this work in a brief report, the following overview offers highlights of the rich and varied interchange at this meeting.
