SfN is a staple meeting and the largest annual global gathering for Neuroscientists. An obvious place then to meet to show our products for stroke modelling and cortical spreading depression. Chicago itself is a favourite location. Don’t forget to try the world famous Chicago deep dish pizza, it’s the best! Last time we were in Chicago we took an hour long boat tour covering historical architecture of note… Sounds boring? Not at all – pick a boat with a bar on board… And be prepared to wrap up warm! No matter what your interest there is always something fun to do in Chicago. We are looking forward to catching up with you and your research!
