Report The annual meeting organized by the Society for Neuroscience is the largest meeting worldwide for neuroscientist. This year (2015) it took place in Chicago, USA. With the support of the Research School Plus we were able to present our latest results of our doctoral projects and got a lot of constructive feedback in terms of new ideas or improvements for our projects. We also have been able to meet a professor of the Department of Neurobiology of the University of Chicago and to see how doctoral students in cutting-edge laboratories of our field conduct their experiments in the USA. Thanks to the Research School Plus we were able to learn a lot about the work of a neuroscientist in the USA.
