Annual Meeting
The GOOD TIMES Rolled!

The cavernous size of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, however, easily accommodated the crowds and made it possible for a higher number than usual of scientific sessions to be centralized in one location.

The theme of this year’s meeting, selected by APA President Daniel Borenstein, M.D., was "Mind Meets Brain: Integrating Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, Neuroscience." Many scientific sessions revolved around this theme. "Daily, new discoveries are helping us to understand how our personal interactions influence brain development and function," Borenstein said at the Opening Session on Sunday evening, May 6. "Psychiatry, psychoanalysis, and neuroscience have overlapping areas of interest, such as perception, affect, dreaming, and memory, that will help elucidate relationships between mind and brain."

One of the high points of the meeting was the lecture presented by Eric R. Kandel, M.D. (see page 1). Kandel, who was one of the winners of the 2000 Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology, drew a standing-room-only crowd that spilled into the corridor.

When APA members and other meeting goers weren’t in scientific sessions, they could be found strolling through the French Quarter, which was only a short walk from the convention center. The pleasures of New Orleans—particularly jazz music and tantalizing Cajun and Creole cuisine, not to mention that enduring duo of beignets and coffee—were in abundance.

APA will hold next year’s annual meeting from May 18 to 23 in the place of not only the nation’s birth but its own, Philadelphia. The forerunner of APA was established there in 1844.
