The Edinburgh University Neurological Society is proud to announce our 6th Annual Conference: Neuroscience to Neurology 2018!

Our conference is open for anyone with an interest in neuroscience and the mind, be you a scientist, medical student, psychologist or an interested member of the public. This one day event is packed full of opportunities to learn, talk and share research about neuroscience. We have lined up three incredible speakers from across the UK, originating from their own different branches of neuroscience to share their research and experience.

Venue

This full day meeting will take place at the Chancellor's Building, University of Edinburgh, Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, Little France.

Speakers

Our invited external speaker this year will be Professor Sophie Scott from University College London. Professor Scott has a special interest in researching the neuroscience of voices. Professor Scott is the Deputy Director and Head of the Speech Communications Group at UCL's Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience. Her research investigates the neural basis of vocal communication and her most recent work has focused on the expression of emotion in voice, specifically the neuroscience of laughter.

Workshops

You will have the opportunity to select two workshops to partake in, such as nerve conduction studies, neurosurgical simulation, neuroanatomy demonstrations and neurology case talks.

Present your research project or a neuroscience-relevant idea

Attendees will have the opportunity to present their own work/research through poster and/or oral presentations.  Oral presentations are not just limited to research, we welcome anyone who has an interesting new idea, research topic or story to tell in the field of neuroscience. All presentations must be 3 minutes long with a maximum of 3 powerpoint slides. Presentations will be judged and we will have prizes for the best presentations on the day!  Deadline for presentations: 22nd January 2018
