Live from the Neuroscience 2016 exhibit hall: DIY research tools

Posted by G. Smit on Nov 15, 2016

As a research tool manufacturer, we try to listen carefully to the scientific community when we create and refine our software and instruments.

Of course we want to make the best products, and we also want you to actually buy and use them. However, I am not in the research and development department, nor am I a sales person. I just like finding out and writing about research.

So for me this Neuroscience meeting is, like last year, a great way to discover what the neuroscience community is up to.

One of the things I admire about many labs is the desire to want to investigate something, and then the creativity to collect and even create what they need for their study.

Neuroscience 2015 – looking back

Posted by G. Smit on Oct 29, 2015

About a week ago I was on a plane flying back from Chicago to Amsterdam. I was exhausted, but very pleased with my experiences at my first Neuroscience meeting. I started out taking baby steps on my first day, but soon I was running a marathon (well, sort of). By Tuesday I really started feeling ‘at home’ and finally it even felt a bit sad to break down the booth and put everything back into the big crates for next year’s show.

Neuroscience 2015 – Getting into the flow of things

Posted by G. Smit on Oct 21, 2015

Tuesday, October 20th – I never thought I would be saying this by day three, but I am actually kind of getting used to how this works. I am absorbing all of the information like a sponge and it is apparently quite a big sponge, because I am ready to absorb more!

Neuroscience 2015 – Running a marathon

Posted by G. Smit on Oct 20, 2015

Monday, October 19th - After my “baby steps” at my first Neuroscience meeting on Sunday, it was time for some running action. Well, honestly, I wasn’t really running around, but I do feel like I walked a marathon. I was set on seeing all the posters today; with two sessions a day, I walked down all those aisles twice. (Can you tell I am kind of proud of myself? I am totally doing this again tomorrow).

Neuroscience 2015 – Baby steps

Posted by G. Smit on Oct 19, 2015

Sunday, October 18th - After helping out my colleagues set up the booth on Saturday, Sunday was my first ‘actual’ SfN day. As a first-timer, I tried to prepare for Neuroscience 2015, but quickly found that you really cannot. It is overwhelming – in a good way. It is like a playground for scientists and anyone interested in what goes on in the brain. And even though there are enough people here to fill a city, it feels like a welcoming community.

Spending the energy

There is so much going on, that it’s hard to decide what booth to see, which lecture to go to, or which poster to visit.
