Neuroscience Day 2017 - Let's Rethink Memory 

  • On May 2 at the Lakeside Lecture Theatres, Aarhus University

Neuroscience Day 2017

On May 2, NeuroCampus Aarhus will host ”Neuroscience Day 2017”. The event will take place in the Lakeside Lecture Theatres, bldg. 1250-3, Aarhus University, and is open to all pre- and post-graduate students, postdocs, assistant and associate professors, professors, clinicians, therapists, caregivers, foundations and organizations interested in neuroscience.

A central theme this year is memory, i.e. the underlying molecular mechanisms in the healthy brain and what goes wrong in the diseased brain. Prof. Richard Morris, who was awarded the Brain Prize in 2016 for his ground-breaking research on memory and learning, will give a keynote talk.

Foundations, scientific associations, and patient and professional organisations spanning the broad field of neuroscience are also invited.

We expect more than 400 researchers, students, and foundation and organization representatives to attend this year's Neuroscience Day.

** Please note that we welcome abstracts from ALL areas related to neuroscience! **

The opening talk with Julie Rubow and Bjørn Jakobsen on "Life with Alzheimer's Disease" will provide an opportunity to ask them questions. This will be moderated by Nis Peter Nissen, Director of the Danish Alzheimer Association. Please send in questions in advance to Deadline for submitting such questions is April 24.
