About the Conference

The Park City Winter Conference on the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory was founded in 1977 to provide researchers a forum for open, critical discussions of current theories and findings in the field of learning and memory, with approaches ranging from cellular and molecular through human behavior. A defining feature of the conference is the 50/50 rule. All too often at conferences sessions are almost entirely consumed by talks with only a few brief questions possible. Here, half of every session is dedicated to questions and discussion. This, coupled with the small format has led to the conference’s reputation of being the site where we, as a field, critically assess not only what we truly know, but what we need to do to move forward.
