OIST has put up an article about the Developmental Neurobiology Course (which they shorten to DNC -- it always makes me think "Democratic National Convention") that I attended in July. I'm quoted! There are also some great pictures of the students and labs, including the one pasted below (that's me in the green tank top!).
And, there's a video of us messing around in the lab! I think there should be more science-themed reality TV. Wouldn't you watch a whole hour of people doing experiments (and getting frustrated when they don't work)?
I haven't seen any information about a 2012 DNC, but I will definitely keep you posted about any future neuroscience courses at OIST. The 2011 OISTers are already planning our SfN meetup!
