About the Event

The Fourth Quadrennial Meeting on Orbitofrontal Cortex Function will be held November 13-15, 2019 at the Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle (ICM) at 47 Boulevard de l'Hôpital, 75013 Paris, France.

Similar to past years, the meeting will feature 2 days and a half of talks and poster sessions, with a free half day in the middle for sightseeing. In addition, we are planning an evening reception/keynote at the top of the tower overlooking the old city at Sorbonne Université (Zamansky Tower). Talks will be 20 minutes, with 5-10 minutes for questions and also discussion periods interspersed with a goal of encouraging interactions among panelists and attendees.

We dedicate this meeting to Dr Howard Eichenbaum in recognition of his magnificent spirit, unstinting generosity to the field, and his landmark contributions to our understanding of how the brain organizes information and guides behavior.
