Brain Oscillations Journal Club

The Brain Oscillations Journal Club consists of a core group of scientists in Dr. Charles Schroeder's laboratory and others at the Nathan Kline Institute, along with researchers in Columbia University's Departments of Psychiatry, Neurology and Pediatrics. The Journal Club meets weekly to either discuss papers relevant to the mechanisms and functional significance of neuronal membrane potential oscillations, or attend a talk presented by a special guest speaker.

The Journal Club meets Wednesdays at 4pm in room 4002 of the New York State Psychiatric Institute. Below you can find information about upcoming and past papers and talks.

If you would like to receive e-mail updates about the content of the weekly meetings, please contact jri2101@columbia.edu in order to be added to the mailing list. For information concerning the Journal Club's members, please visit its primary page here.
