Society for Neurobiology of Language in Baltimore

November 8-10, SNL has work by Mina Hirzel, Chia-Hsuan Liao, Phoebe Gaston, with Ellen Lau, Jeffrey Lidz, former postdoc William Matchin and former RA Natalia Lapinskaya. Also just up the road at the Baltimore Aquarium, which hosts the conference reception, are illustrious PhD alums Dave Kush, Jon Sprouse, Diogo Almeida, Philip Monahan and Rob Fiorentino, as well as BA alum Emma Nguyen.
