There's nothing like an Annual Conference of the British Psychological Society's Psychobiology Section for bringing on my impostor syndrome... it can be pretty high-end stuff, and this year I bashed out a report on the train home (see psychobio18), terrified that any grasp I had on it all was slipping. But they have always done an excellent line in keynote speakers who can engage and inform our wide audience, and this year was no exception: I hope you will join Sarah Garfinkel and John Cryanon their fantastic voyages through brain, heart and gut.

Later on in the issue there's a bit of a memory theme, in the form of interviews with Alan Baddeley and with sisters Hilde and Ylva Østby. And Father Christmas makes a festively timed appearance in our 'Looking back'.

Also this month we shine a spotlight on a man who has been working away behind the scenes of the BPS for more than 20 years now - our Assistant Editor Peter Dillon-Hooper. Happy retirement, Peter, you've earned it.
