Neuroscience is one of the fastest developing fields of life sciences. Its main goal is to understand bases of functioning of the brain and the remaining components of the nervous system, to grasp processes underlying psychic phenomena and behavior and to explain origin of mental and neurodegenerative diseases.


Polish Neuroscience Society brings together neuroscientists, is involved in dissemination of knowledge on the nervous system and progress made in neuroscience, is engaged in popularization of neuroscience, organization of training courses, publication of related materials and represents Polish community of neuroscientists both in Poland and abroad.


The Brain Awareness Week is an annual educational event aimed to disseminate knowledge about the brain and nervous system and its functioning in health and pathology. Its mission is to build awareness in the society on the significance of brain research.

2nd Neurogenesis Conference, 05 – 08 March 2019

Sebastian Jessberger (University of Zurich) and Hongjun Song (University of Pennsylvania) are organizing the 2nd Neurogenesis Conference, which will take place from 05 – 08 March 2019 in Nassau, Bahamas. This conference will bring together leaders from diverse fields such as embryonic cortical development, adult neurogenesis, human imaging, and stem cell-based neural disease modelling to discuss recent advances in understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating neural stem cell activity, neuronal specification and functional significance of circuitries modified by the addition of new neurons. In addition, translational perspectives and implications for disease modelling will be covered. Confirmed Keynote Speakers include Jonas Frisén (Karolinska Institute) and Fred Gage (Salk Institute).

ENCODS 2018, July 5-6, 2018, Berlin

The European Neuroscience Conference by Doctoral Students (ENCODS) is a conference organised by and for doctoral students, and a partner of FENS (Federation of European Neuroscience Societies). As a training network for PhD students in neurosciences, ENCODS holds annually cross-disciplinary conferences to prepare young neuroscientists to meet the challenges in the field of neurosciences for today and the future.


ENCODS 2018 will be held in Berlin, Germany, on July 5-6th, the days preceding the FENS Forum. ENCODS 2018 has been designed to provide an intimate environment where young researchers can interact with both renowned scientists and fellow researchers. It features novel interactive talk formats, like an unconference, workshops and student talks, to foster links among students of different fields of neuroscience.


Deadline of application is February 28, 2018.

NEURONUS IBRO Neuroscience Forum 2018

The upcoming 10th conference will take place from the 20-22nd of April 2018 in the Auditorium Maximum of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland. The NEURONUS IBRO Neuroscience Forum 2018 will mainly consist of two parallel ongoing topical blocks: Cognitive Neuroscience Sessions and Biological Neuroscience Sessions. They will provide a variety of oral lectures concerning such research areas as neurodegenerative diseases, neurogenetics, neuroplasticity, neurophysiology, neuropsychology, emotional processing, stimulus perception or the psychological standpoint on brain lateralisation.

Registration and abstract submission will open soon.
