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.
From 15 to 17 November, the Education Programme Office of the Human Brain Project will organise its 2nd HBP Curriculum workshop series – Research, Ethics and Societal Impact at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden under the title “Dual Use and Responsible Research. Ethical Challenges”. This workshop aims to provide participants with insights on ethical aspects of dual-use research in neuroscience and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). The topics covered will include the chemistry of the brain and dual action of drugs, novel incapacitants, ethics awareness and engagement and RRI.
Further information about the workshop and the registration form are found HERE.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee we would like to invite you to the 14th International Symposium “Molecular basis of pathology and therapy in neurological disorders”. The conference will focus on recent advances in research on molecular mechanisms involved in central nervous system functioning in health and disease, as well as an implementation of novel experimental therapies to the neurological clinic.

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).

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.
