A one day symposium sponsored by the National Eye Institute,  honoring the achievements of Lance Optican, will be held in Sand Diego on Nov 2 (the day before the
Neuroscience meeting). The meeting will focus on vision and visually-guided action. We will hear from Farran Briggs, Bevil Conway, Doug Crawford,
Kathy Cullen, Joe Demer, Rich Krauzlis, Philippe Lefevre, Doug Munoz, Leslie Osborne, Jenny Read,
Michele Rucci, and Janet Rucker.
The talks will cover a wide swath of systems neuroscience and will be aimed at a broad audience,
providing a great overview of the latest research in the field. A detailed program is below.

We look forward to seeing you in San Diego.
