CAMRI has a weekly CAMRI Neuroscience Seminar Series and Journal Club (CNJC). It breaks for summer holidays, winter break, and other major holidays such as Thanksgiving. The Seminar Series features leaders in the field of human neuroscience discussing their latest research. The series is a mixture of physical and virtual seminars given over Skype. On weeks with no seminar series, there will be a journal club whose purpose is to discuss high impact, insightful articles from all areas of human neuroscience, especially functional and anatomical MRI. The format is an interactive, open forum with a primary presenter and the full participation of the audience. This journal club will provide a learning environment for the critical analysis of journal articles, presentation skills, and experimental design. It is affiliated with the Neuroscience Graduate Program of the Neuroscience Department and has a home page here:
