Einmal im Jahr veranstalten der SFB 874 und die IGSN eine gemeinsame Konferenz zu den neuesten Themen in der neurowissenschaftlichen Forschung. In diesem Jahr nahmen 12 renommierte internationale Wissenschaftler und über 100 Gäste und Studenten daran teil.

Zehn Doktoranden der IGSN hielten kurze einführende Präsentationen zu den Themen der einzelnen Sessions. Außerdem konnten die Doktoranden ihre Ideen in der Brainstorming-Session mit den Gästen der Konferenz austauschen.

Unser Dank geht an alle, die geholfen haben, diese Konferenz zu einer solch anregenden und schönen Veranstaltung zu machen. Ein spezieller Dank gilt dabei Jun.-Prof. Olivia Masseck, die so kurzfristig eingesprungen ist.
