We are pleased to announce the 15th annual Bay Area Memory Meeting (BAMM), to be held at San Jose State University on August 16th. BAMM is an annual meeting that brings together investigators studying memory and cognitive control from the peninsula (Stanford, UCSC, SJSU, CSU East Bay, and Santa Clara University), city (UCSF and USF), east bay (UC Berkeley and Martinez VA), valley (UC Davis), and beyond (UCSB and UCLA).


The objectives of BAMM are to:

  1. Foster communication and an exchange of ideas between scientists in the Bay Area who study memory and cognitive control, and
  2. Provide a forum in which students and postdocs can present their research and build relationships with faculty and peers beyond their local institution.


As in prior years, BAMM is expected to include approximately 35 presentations from 15+ Bay Area labs (for a listing of previous meetings see All sessions are intended to provide an engaging environment in which students and postdocs can present their work. The content of the presentations is flexible, and can cover any studies relevant to the function and organization of learning, memory, and neural plasticity.
