Congratulations Liz, for your acceptance to the Summer Institute in Cognitive Neuroscience, known to attendees as “Brain Camp“. The competition was intense, with only 70 people accepted out of more than 200 applicants. This year’s Summer Institute, in Santa Barbara, CA will be held June 22-July 3, and focuses on a mix of methodological and developmental questions. We’re expecting Liz to bring back lots of great information, and lots of great stories!
