Don’t miss the FENS Forum in Barcelona 2012: great science in a great venue

The Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) organizes its 8th Forum of Neuroscience, the largest international neuroscience meeting in Europe, in Barcelona (July 14th-18th).

This year, the FENS and the Sociedad Española de Neurociencia (whos acts as host) have organized, for graduate students and post-doctorate investigators, the Young Investigator Training Programme (YITP), a series of exciting events for those attending the FENS Forum in Barcelona!

The programme includes summer research stays in Spanish laboratories before or after participating in the FENS forum, in which more than 90 teams are ready to welcome you. Career development courses and events such as the:
Professional development satellite symposium (July 13, 2012), focused professional skills, specifically oriented to PhD students and young post-doctoral fellows. The job fair and networking space, “Building your career” that will allow you meeting employers from industry, non-profit organizations and academia. The Meet-the-Expert Series where you can talk with the plenary lecturers in a personal context/ informal environment that offers participants a behind-the-scenes look at factors influencing the expert’s work. The programme can be fully explored at fens2012.neurosciences.asso.fr/pages/index2.php?sub=27&left=110

Check also the unprecedented number of funding opportunities for students here: fens2012.neurosciences.asso.fr/pages/index2.php?sub=18&left=110

Please be aware that the deadline is approaching!

Finally we encourage you to discover the great students activities: participate in the scientific photography and video contests (Art, people and science in a snapshot: “Scientific phenomena” and “The lab through your eyes”), with amazing prices, bring your band to the Science Rock Party, and meet your peers in a great Rock venue at the traditional Jump the FENS party.

We hope you will enjoy great science in a great place as Barcelona!plored at fens2012.neurosciences.asso.fr/pages/index2.php?sub=27&left=110

El mal del cerebro

La Neurociencia avanza. Este es uno de los mensajes que el documental “el mal del cerebro” nos deja de forma entretenida y plausible. Algunos de los más reconocidos centros de investigación españoles nos enseñan nuevas tecnologías que permiten el estudio y tratamiento de enfermedades neurológicas tan comunes como el Parkinson o el Alzheimer.

Resulta muy interesante la forma en la que se entrelazan las historias de los protagonistas. Expertos y pacientes hablan de cómo ven funciones tan importantes como el movimiento y el recuerdo, las diferentes perspectivas nos dejan un mensaje claro: “el cerebro manda”. Conocer el código de la mente o descubrir los entresijos del sustrato neuronal son hitos de la Neurociencia que se están escribiendo.

La investigación del sistema nervioso en España es pionera y así queda plasmado en “el mal del cerebro”.
