International Workshop on Learning and Memory Consolidation

San Sebastian, Spain, July 10-12th, 2014

As part of its wider scientific and knowledge-transfer activities, the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language ( is delighted to announce a workshop dedicated to the mechanisms of learning and memory consolidation.

Our aim is to provide a multidisciplinary platform to discuss the processes of memory formation, with a strong emphasis on the offline neural changes leading to memory stabilization and enhancement. Our hope is to bring together researchers working on these issues at various levels of analysis, i.e., cellular, systemic and behavioural, and with data coming from humans as well as other species.

The International Workshop on Learning and Memory Consolidation is to take place from Thursday the 10th to the Saturday 12th of July 2014, at the Palacio Miramar in Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain.
