The Young Neuroscientists Symposium (YNS) will be an excellent forum for all young neuroscientists to present and discuss their research. The event is aimed at promoting the research of early career scientists, from postgraduate to postdoctorate in any field devoted to brain research. We wish to promote interdisciplinary interaction and aim to foster collaborations between researchers based in Ireland. Please feel free to distribute and display our YNS Flyer in your department.

There will be oral communication sessions and poster presentations across a number of neuroscience themes. Additionally, there will be keynote addresses by Prof. Michael Heneka (University of Bonn, Germany) and Prof. Alan Sanfey (Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior, Radboud University, Netherlands). There will also be a workshop session focussing on career development with a panel drawn from academia, industry and funding bodies. Of course, there is also an all important social event planned for the evening.

See our Frequently Asked Questions page for further information (updated 11th September – see the information on having your abstract indexed at Frontiers in Neuroscience).
