► The Clinicopathological Correlation Conference every third Friday from 9-10 am in the Research & Teaching Building at Harborview Medical Center. Dr. Dirk Keene and his colleagues present cases of interest to neuropathological and genetic research and lead a group discussion about new insights into the relationship between neuropathology, genetics, clinical disease manifestation.

►The ADRC Quarterly Scientific Meeting is held once every quarter in the CPC time slot.

► The monthly Brain Aging and Neurodegeneration Research in Progress Seminar. This conference is held monthly on the first Friday at 9:00 am at Harborview, starting August 2017. The seminar is an opportunity for graduate students, fellows, and junior faculty to present their research in progress. Talks are designed to provide a supportive environment for trainees to learn to present scientific data and ideas, to receive feedback on research projects, hypotheses, and experimental designs, and to promote interactions between the brain aging and neurodegeneration scientific community and trainees. All who are interested are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please email beller@uw.edu if you'd like to be added to the seminar email list.

For Students

Grey Matters Journal— An undergraduate neuroscience journal at the University of Washington. Join the staff members who publish a quarterly journal that is written, edited, illustrated, and produced entirely by undergraduate students. Aside from the journal, Grey Matters also hosts events such as our annual Evening with Neuroscience, an event dedicated to helping the public learn more about neuroscience from some of the most accomplished individuals in the field.

 

"Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is a way of taking MRI images that is sensitive to the way water diffuses in the brain. If there is any sort of damage to the white matter of the brain, we see increased or disordered diffusion. Additionally, water diffuses quickly along the white matter pathways of the brain, so DTI can allow us to see the pathways that connect different parts of the brain." -Dan Peterson, UW Integrated Brain Imaging Center.
