Summary

Some 200 scientists at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) may be no-shows next month at the year's biggest neuroscience meeting, thanks to a management directive by the Bush Administration to limit government travel. NIH officials hope that a personal appeal by several institute directors will persuade their bosses at the Department of Health and Human Services that the policy could hinder progress in biomedical research.
