Neuroscience 2014, which took place in Washington, DC, last November, was a busy international gathering of 31,000 people all focused on the science of the mind, brain and nervous system. It was the 44th annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN). More than 15,000 presentations covered research advances, new techniques and promising treatments for neurological conditions. Much of the program was geared toward neuroscience specialists, but as in the past, the conference was also a primary source of brain science and health news for the media and the public.Lab Anim.
