The Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior (Google Map) at UCLA is pleased to present Institute Grand Rounds, our weekly educational conference that brings you cutting-edge information about the clinical neurosciences, human behavior, and mental health care. The conferences are held in the Louis Jolyon West Auditorium at the Institute on the UCLA campus, and have been webcast online since 1996 with streaming video.

     Please note that, effective September 2017, some of the presentations will not be accredited for CME or other continuing education credit; this allows us to bring you important topics where the relevance to clinical practice lies more distantly in the future.

     "We hope you'll attend these programs in person whenever possible, and use the webcast and podcast editions to enhance your learning experience."
           -- Ian A. Cook, MD DFAPA, Course Director
