Arnold Scheibel Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuroscience Lecture

In 2004 the Brain Research Institute initiated the Arnold Scheibel Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuroscience Lecture. This annual lecture honors one postdoctoral fellow for outstanding research in neuroscience, and includes presentation of a lecture in the Joint Seminars in Neuroscience series, and a cash prize to attend a scientific meeting during the year.

This year, the Tenth Annual Distinguished Postdoctoral Lecturer was Paul Mathews, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow working in the laboratory of Dr. Tom Otis in the Department of Neurobiology, and the Integrative Center for Learning & Memory, UCLA. His lecture, “Shining Light on the Role of the Climbing Fiber Pathway in the Cerebellar Cortex,” was presented to the neuroscience community on November 13, 2012.
