ReplaysInParis: Hippocampal Replay, Emotional Valence and Reinforcement Learning

ReplaysInParis: Hippocampal Replay, Emotional Valence and Reinforcement Learning

Organizers: Benoît Girard, Mehdi Khamassi and Karim Benchenane
Sponsor: RHiPAR project of the 80|PRIME CNRS program
Speaker gender ratio: 3 Women : 5 Men (38%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 37%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword replay OR (hippocampus AND memory) and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 60 pages of results using our python script. We left 39 names unclassified, the base rate therefore could range from 36%-39%.
