BNA-ABN joint symposium 'Meeting of Minds'
BNA-ABN joint symposium 'Meeting of Minds' - Spetember 29th 2016
Bursaries are available for early career researchers and clinicians - see full details
Members of the British Neuroscience Association and the Association of British Neurologists not only share initials but also a desire to understand the translational links from basic to clinical neuroscience.
For the first time, the two societies are combining, with the assistance of the Cardiff Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Institute, to bring together experts and interested researchers in a one day ‘Meeting of Minds’. Two related topics, Epilepsy and Amnesia will be discussed, with talks and discussions spanning different levels of analysis.
The meeting will bring together people from related, but different, disciplines in order to shine a light on these two taxing neurological conditions, and promote informed discussion in an informal atmosphere. In addition to the eight talks given by international experts in their fields, attendees will be able to present posters for discussion and there will be a wine reception for everyone at the end of the day.
