PRESENTATION:
The Third Quadrennial Meeting on Orbitofrontal Cortex Function which 
will take place in Paris, France, on Sept 30th – Oct 2nd 2015 at the 
Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle Epinière, Paris, France. The 
objective of this three day meeting is to bring together researchers 
with a deep interest in the role of the orbitofrontal cortex in 
supporting cognition (behavior, learning, decision-making) across 
species. The meeting is the third, following up on similar meetings in 
2007 and 2011. As such, it is intended to focus specifically on new 
ideas and research that has influenced the field over the past 4 years 
and that appear likely to lead the way into the next 4 years.

The meeting consists of both invited talks and poster sessions. The 
invited talks are loosely organized into six different sessions that are 
titled to reflect the various stages of processing underlying cognition. 
Talks will be relatively short with ample time for questions and 
discussion after each talk and sub-group of talks. Poster sessions will 
be interspersed to allow participants to interact and present their own 
unique findings of relevance to advancing our understanding of this 
fascinating brain region.
