A successful CNS2018 for Cambridge Neuroscience - photos
Cambridge Neuroscience was delighted to host the 30th Cambridge Neuroscience Seminar, 'Mental Plasticity & Development' together with the Department of Psychology on Monday 12th March 2018 at Robinson College.
This year, the meeting focused on areas of research that highlighted the interdisciplinary nature of the Psychology Department, with sessions covering neural architectures and plasticity mechanisms that enable the development of knowledge, memory and skill acquisition. With plenary lectures from Essi Viding, Matthew Botvinick and Paul Fletcher, who delivered the public lecture as part of the Cambridge Science Festival - "I'm not mad: I only bend reality so that I can see around the corners".
With more than 300 delegates attending, 60 research posters and a data blitz, the day gave a snapshot into the extent of neuroscience research in Cambridge and how it fits into the broader context of neuroscience worldwide. Poster prizes (£200 each sponsored by Cambridge Neuroscience) were awarded to Delia Fuhrmann, a Postdoctoral Researcher from the MRC CBSU and a joint prize was jointly awarded to three Part II Psychology students, supervised by Amy Milton (Alexa Netty, Vikram Thakur and Natasha Seaton).
