Adventuring to SfN17
It's been two weeks since I traveled to Washington D.C. to take part in my first ever Art of Neuroscience Exhibition at the Society for Neuroscience annual convention with 30,000 attendees. In a word - amazing.
The art exhibition was fairly small with only 7 booths and each of us had something really unique to offer. Links to my fellow artists below if you'd like to learn more about them. And, as the newbie at the show, I have to say they were all kind and helpful!
The best part of the show for me was the response to my work by neuroscientists. People from all over the world came by my booth and talked to me about my work and appreciated it. And by now, pieces of mine have been carried as far as Japan, Turkey, Spain, Brazil and Greece.
It was an incredibly gratifying experience and I hope to be able to attend next year as well in San Diego, California - my old home state.
In the meantime, here is what's on my reading list:

Hello, Laura! I appreciate the fact that you shared you experience and feelings while you were in Neuroscience Exhibition at the Society for Neuroscience annual convention. I know that you were really happy to be there, and no amount of words can ever explain how ecstatic you were to be there. It doesn't happen on an everyday basis, that's why we should always grab the opportunities that we think will be good to us. You were able to meet a lot of people while you were there and learned new things. I have no words for you, but amazing! I am hoping that it will happen once again!
