An especially popular
event is the Annual Neuroscience Retreat, which is held each
fall at Pere Marquette State Park in Grafton, IL, near St. Louis ( Route 100, PO Box 158, Grafton, IL 62037). This
well-attended event includes a mixture of academic, social,

among students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty from different
departments and different subdisciplines. Sponsored by the McDonnell Center for Systems Neuroscience, the McDonnell Center for Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology, and the Division of Biology & Biomedical Sciences.
