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.

Profesor Jerzy Vetulani nie żyje

Z głębokim smutkiem i żalem zawiadamiamy, że 6 kwietnia wieczorem odszedł od nas prof. dr hab. Jerzy Vetulani. Straciliśmy naszego Kolegę i Przyjaciela, Człowieka wielu talentów, pasjonata rozumu i nauki, którą nieustająco krzewił i popularyzował. Był Człowiekiem o dużej wiedzy i głębokim rozumieniu świata, ale także wielkiej empatii.

Będzie nam wszystkim Go bardzo brakować.
