Journal Club

The Jurnal Club Neurology (JCN) supports the regular communication and discussion of new research findings in the scientific literature in the field of neurology. We meet once per month.

There are two different kinds of sessions:

Overview session: 4-5 new publications are presented and briefly discussed.
Methods session: One topic/paper is presented in detail and is being thouroughly discussed (especially concerning its methods).

We will use the mailing list journalclubneurology(at)lists.uni-oldenburg.de to send out information for the preparation of each upcoming session. The table at the bottom of this website lists dates and (if already known) topics of the sessions. If you would like to be put on the mailing list, please write an informal email to Julius Kricheldorff or Jana Schill (contact information is given at the top left corner).

We invite everyone to join us!
