Dear members and friends of the Pavlovian Society:

The annual meeting of the society will be held in Jersey City, NJ
 on September 29 – Oct 2, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the
 Hudson. The meeting begins with a reception Thursday evening and ends with a banquet Saturday night.

This year’s keynote speaker will be John Pearce (FRS, Cardiff University), and I’m especially pleased that the meeting will include sessions on a variety of interesting and currently intensively studied topics including: cerebellar circuits, learning in simple systems, learning effects on sensory processing, reward systems and addiction, episodic memory, aversive learning and avoidance, developmental processes, interval timing, and action/habit systems. The current list of speakers includes (in alphabetical order): Kasia Bieszczad (Rutgers), Chris Cain (NYU Medical Center, Nathan Kline Institute), Vinn Campese (NYU), Ruth Colwill (Brown), Jon Crystal (Indiana University), Nathaniel Daw (Princeton), Alfredo Fontanini (SUNY – Stony Brook), David Glanzman (UCLA), Germund Hesslow (Lund University), Peter Holland (Johns Hopkins University), Rob Honey (Cardiff University), Karla Kaun (Brown), Matt Lattal (Oregon Health Sciences University), Mike Mauk (University of Texas – Austin), John McGann (Rutgers), Sean Ostlund (UC-Irvine), Cathy Rankin (University of British Columbia), Matthew Rausch (University of Maryland), Kerry Ressler (Emory University), Mike Saddoris (University of Colorado-Boulder), Geoff Schoenbaum (NIDA), Mike Shiflett (Rutgers-Newark), Regina Sullivan (NYU Medical Center, Nathan Kline Institute), Elizabeth Tricomi (Rutgers-Newark), Kate Wassum (UCLA).

New York City and all of its attractions is a 5 minute ride on the PATH train (Exchange Place station). The Exchange Place station is right outside the hotel and the nearest stop in Manhattan is at the World Trade Center station. If you come a few days early or stay a few days after the meeting there is plenty of theater, music, food and sporting events to enjoy.
