The Undergraduate Neuroscience Conference
of the Upper Midwest
October 5, 2013
The inaugural MidBrains Undergraduate Neuroscience Conference - MidBrains 2007 - was held at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota, on Saturday, April 28th, 2007. Both the 2008 conference (May 3, 2008) and 2009 conference (May 2, 2009) were also hosted by Macalester College. The conference is a joint effort of the MidBrains Neuroscience Consortium-- a network of faculty from undergraduate neuroscience programs in the upper midwest, and now the conference rotates among the various network institutions. MidBrains 2010 was held at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN on May 1, 2010, and MidBrains 2011 was there as well, on April 30, 2011. The rotation has now moved to Carleton College, and to the Fall Semester. This annual event provides a forum for undergraduate students in the Midwest to present research findings, to attend research lectures and special panels, and to meet other undergraduate students interested in the neurosciences. Representatives from several major research universities are also present to discuss graduate school opportunities. Students are encouraged to submit abstracts in all fields of the neurosciences and related disciplines!

Online Registration opens September 1, 2013! Deadline: September 27, 2013
