Dear Auditory Researchers !

Invitation to
IBRO Satellite Symposium
"Processing in Auditory and Language Cortex: Katsuki Memorial"

     We are going to hold a symposium in July 6-7, 1995 in Sapporo.
That is the satellite symposium to IBRO congress held in Kyoto on July
9-14.  We sincerely welcome your coming and participation.
     The proceeding publication would be prepared after the symposium.

Date:  July 6-7, 1995
Place: Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan
