The MiND course was organized as part of an annual course at the UiB research school IGSIN (International Graduate School in Integrated Neurosciences). The highly interdisciplinary IGSIN course was this year topped with lecturers from the MiND network, focusing on clinical aspects, genetics, biomarkers and modeling of ADHD and ASD.

The 15 MiND PhD students have recently been recruited from many different countries and participated in lectures and practical demonstrations, together with 10 additional PhD candidates from different countries.  They also enjoyed a range of social activities in the historic parts of Bergen and its surrounding mountains. As shown in the pictures MiND partner Will Norton from University of Leicester stayed for the duration of the course and eagerly participated in all activities, whether in sunshine or rain.
