We are delighted to announce that the BNA2017: Festival of Neuroscience will take place at Birmingham International Conference Centre (ICC), 10-13 April 2017, in association with The Physiological Society.

The BNA would like to invite you to submit proposals for Symposia and/or Workshops, and also to propose special events. The themes for 2017 are:
Genetics and epigenetics
Neuronal and glial molecular and cellular mechanisms
Sensory and motor systems
Novel treatments and translational neuroscience
Psychiatry and mental health
Attention, motivation and behaviour
Learning and memory
Neuroendocrine and autonomic nervous systems
Neurodegenerative disorders and ageing
The neurobiology of stress – a topic meeting of The Physiological Society
The closing date for proposals is 5pm on Friday 18th March 2016. The programme committee will then consider proposals for inclusion in BNA2017.
