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.

     Institute Grand Rounds programs are held in the Louis Jolyon West Auditorium (C8-183) in the Semel Institute building at 760 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles CA 90095 (Google Map), routinely on Tuesdays. Unless otherwise indicated, the presentation will begin at 11:00 AM, and coffee will be served in the auditorium foyer at 10:45. Grand Rounds presentations have been webcast online since 1996 with streaming video. If a presentation has been archived, its title will appear as a hyperlink; if the title is not a hyperlink, then either it has not been archived yet or the speaker declined to permit webcasting. For more information about our other Semel Institute educational programs, please call the Office of Professional and Community Education at (310) 206-9299, or send email to sheri@brain.ucla.edu

     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
