The Program in Neurobiology and Behavior sponsors a weekly seminar. These are typically presentations of recent work or work-in-progress by invited speakers from throughout the country. Two annual memorial lectureships, honoring former Columbia faculty, are given by distinguished neurobiologists from throughout the international neurobiology community: W. Alden Spencer and Stephen Schuetze.
The program sponsors a biennial retreat. Students, faculty, and a keynote speaker present their work and interact at a meeting site away from New York City (former locations include Mohonk Mountain Resort in New Paltz, NY, and Tarrytown House Estate in Tarrytown, NY).
