EDITORIAL | Issue 2013 | Editor: Miranda Cook, Appalachian State University
The 2012 year was an exciting time for IMPULSE. We welcomed the Universitat de Barcelona as a new Reviewer Training Site, marking the addition of our second international RTS. Our Managing Editor, Meghan Kusper, represented IMPULSE at the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies Forum in Barcelona, Spain, students from several reviewer training sites participated in SYNAPSE at the University of South Carolina, and a large group was able to attend the Society for Neuroscience Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. Now, as we move into the 2013 year, the tenth year since founding the journal, I hope to continue with the same momentum. Plans for this upcoming year include continuing our presence at SYNAPSE, hosted at USC in March, and attending SfN in San Diego representing over a decade of IMPULSE presentations! I'm very excited to be taking over as Editor-In-Chief for the journal and look forward to increasing our recognition in the undergraduate neuroscience communities.
