This conference aims to provide a platform for scientific exchange between senior Neuroscientists and young researchers from all over the world to discuss their research and form networks.

This year we present a program that not only brings the participants up to speed with the latest developments in the various fields of Neuroscience, but also offers a unique opportunity to tap into career prospects outside of academia during "Career talks". These four days will feature some of the most prominent scientists delivering lectures on one of the five advertised special topics; Higher brain function, Synaptic physiology and plasticity, sensory and motor systems, developmental and clinical neuroscience and emerging techniques. The keynote lecture will be given by Susumu Tonegawa. In addition, participants will have the chance for discussion not only during poster sessions and presentations but also during the numerous social activities.
