Russian speaking neuroscience connection
Since SfN is cancelled this year due to covid, we decided to connect with Russian-speaking neuroscientists leaving abroad. Over the years of my neuroscience training I got connected to many researchers working in different states of the US as well as different countries including US, England and France.
Despite the fact that we are all living in different parts of the world and working on different aspects of the brain, we are still connected. Every SfN once a year we usually have a dinner to talk about neuroscience and beyond. Given the circumstances of the pandemic, we are connecting on zoom. It is a great pleasure to feel connected to so many great researchers who are speaking the same mother tongue as you.
