SpecNeuro resuming next week

There’s no meeting this week for SpecNeuro, but we will be resuming next week (August 1st). We’ll be discussing a very interesting article on the neuroscience of pain, available here in case you want to get a head start on reading it this weekend. As an aside, I’ve registered a website for the club at […]
