We are pleased to announce the Cambridge Clinical Neuroscience and Mental Health Symposium, 29th - 30th September 2009, to be held at the West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge.
The Symposium will present the science and practice of brain sciences and mental health with an emphasis on disorders that are common and place a large burden on society. We have selected six cross-cutting themes that highlight the principles of contemporary translational neuroscience.
Symposium Sessions include:
We have an exciting line up of local and international speakers, who will discuss their research on Addiction, Alzheimer's and Dementia, Depression, Huntington's Disease, Mood Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, Obesity, Pain, Parkinson's Disease, Schizophrenia, Spinal Cord Injury and Stroke.
