Our first meeting was held on December 1st 2014 in the department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics.
With over forty dopamine researchers attending from sites around the university it was a great success, full of engaged debate and discussion. This was in large part thanks to our two excellent speakers. Scott Waddell brought us up to date with his laboratory's work on the role of dopamine in olfactory conditioning and motivation in drosophila whilst Colin McNamara from David Dupret's laboratory presented his latest paper, published in Nature Neuroscience, detailing how dopaminergic neurons promote hippocampal reactivation and spatial memory.
