Greetings from Portland!

Neuropsychologists are beginning to stream into town for the INS meeting that kicks off tomorrow. The conference takes place just a couple of blocks from the iconic Portland Building by Michael Graves, one of the first of the post-modernist structures from the turn of the 1980s. Outsized Portlandia is still a sight to be seen from street level.

As to the conference, I'm very pleased to see the surprising number of presentations about verbal fluency (a favorite topic of mine) and what are likely to be some very good presentations about Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). Thematically, the conference deals with rehabilitation issues this time around, with a number of presentations on that broad topic.

(And plenty of good coffeehouses, too!)

Room space is tight. The conference hotel sold out a while ago. The hotel I am staying at (a half-dozen blocks from the conference) is sold out. I am guessing that folks are spread out over the entire FreeZone.

(Someone just rolled down the street on a unicycle. Neuropsychologist? Hmmmm ....)
