A British Neuroscience Association event


The BNA2019 Festival of Neuroscience will highlight some of the best research into the brain and nervous system via an interdisciplinary conference featuring ~200 speakers and 1500+ delegates from the UK and abroad. Leading experts including a 2018 Brain Prize winner and the President-Elect of the Society for Neuroscience will deliver plenary lectures, and hundreds of researchers will present their latest work in symposia, workshops and posters.


Objective 1: To evaluate and share recent progress across the whole field of neuroscience research, in order to increase delegates' knowledge; to identify state-of-the-art and emerging methods and techniques; and to identify where advances can be made in research, clinical diagnosis and treatment. Sessions including, but not limited to:
“Neural processes and precursors of self-initiated action”
“The neuroendocrinology of programmed rheostasis”
“The microbiome: A Key regulator of the impact of diet on brain function”
“Within and beyond the medial temporal lobe: Brain circuits for place and recognition memory”
“New molecular approaches for understanding synapses, circuits, and behaviour”

Objective 2: To foster the expertise, skills and career pathways of delegates, by providing sessions specifically focused on career development; opportunities for networking; the chance for over 1000 poster presentations; by ensuring that every symposium has at least one Early Career Researcher in the line-up of speakers. Sessions include, but not limited to:
“Rapid fire talks: 30 selected abstracts presented as 3-minute talks”
“Big Data: Management, modelling & collaboration”
“How a journal handles your paper“
“How to be a good reviewer”
“Speed-dating for careers”
“Improving the reproducibility, replicability and reliability of your neuroscience research”

Objective 3: To highlight successes and opportunities for translational research, in order to allow delegates to engage with the pharmaceutical industry and university sector across a broad range of topics within clinical neuroscience, in particular in neurology and psychiatry. Sessions include, but not limited to:
“Mental illness in children and adolescents: neuroscience, ethics and practice in psychopharmacology”
“The link between neuroinflammation and dysregulated metabolism in the context of age and Alzheimer's disease”
“Characterizing addiction using neuroimaging”
“Developing disease modifying therapies for Parkinson's”
“Neuromuscular disorders - cutting edge of translation”
