A central theme this year is memory, i.e. the underlying molecular mechanisms in the healthy brain and what goes wrong in the diseased brain. Prof. Richard Morris, who was awarded the Brain Prize in 2016 for his ground-breaking research on memory and learning, will give a keynote talk. Foundations, scientific associations, and patient and professional organisations spanning the broad field of neuroscience are also invited. We expect more than 400 researchers, students, and foundation and organization representatives to attend this year's Neuroscience Day.
