Passion for Neuroscience
The Passion for Neuroscience Symposium is open to all interested in neuroscience research.
Four outstanding scientists will present keynotes talks on their ground-breaking research spanning for basic neuroscience and sensory physiology, to human language, cognition, and genetics of psychiatric disorders.
In addition, two young neuroscientists from UiB will be invited to present short presentations of their research.
The symposium will close with a panel discussion and open dialogue on the "Future of neuroscience".
We welcome students, PhD candidates, young researchers, senior faculty staff, administration, collaboration partners and the public audience to take part in this exciting symposium about neuroscience.
