Journal Clubs

There are several Journal Clubs available to members of the IPN.  If you are interested in one or more of these topics, ask to be put on the mailing list.

Neural Injury and Plasticity Journal Club

This Journal Club is associated with the NIP Training grant. Students and faculty present papers related to neural injury and plasticity, including articles on brain and spinal cord injury, Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease. It meets on Monday at noon during the school year. Organizer: NIP T32 Trainees.

Cognitive Science Journal Club 

This journal club is a spring semester weekly meeting in which students and faculty in the concentration present their research or jointly read recent articles of importance.

Cognitive Neuroimaging Journal Club

This student-run journal club meets at 1pm on Thursdays to discuss papers related to neuroimaging, with a focus on Cognitive Neuroscience. Organizer: Katie O’Connell.

Neural Dynamics

This student-run journal club meets at 12pm on Wednesdays to discuss papers related to investigating the spatiotemporal neural code, across many areas of neuroscience. Organizer: Adam Caccavano.

Seminar Journal Club

First and second year students are required to attend journal clubs with vistiting speakers for the Tuesday IPN Seminar Series. Senior students are also welcome.

Lab Journal Clubs

Certain labs hold their own journal clubs but welcome non-lab members. Ask around if there is a topic you are particularly interested in.

Brain and Language Journal Club

The Brain and Language Journal Club is a student-run, biweekly meeting from 10:30-12 on Fridays, open to researchers at all levels of training interested in discussing topics relevant to how the brain processes language (and cognition in general). Our meetings are attended by 3-7 faculty members and by trainees from 7-8 different labs. At each meeting, a student presents a journal article that is either a recent study or a historically important piece of work, and we interrupt throughout with questions and discussion. We are proceeding via Zoom for the time being. Organizer: Kelly Martin
