Event details

The Edinburgh University Neurological Society is proud to announce our 6th Annual Conference: Neuroscience to Neurology 2018! Taking place at the Chancellor's Building, Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

Our conference is open to 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. 

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 (more details to follow).

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!

There is also a prize for our essay competition! The essay question and instructions on how to submit will be posted later this week.

Tickets for the day are £12.00.  This fee will cover your admission for the entire day's events, as well as lunch and refreshments throughout the day. Everyone who attends the day will be provided with a certificate of attendance.

Our final speaker of the day is the first to be announced: Professor Sophie Scott from University College London 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 the voice, specifically the neuroscience of laughter. We are delighted to welcome Professor Scott to Edinburgh and hope to see you all next February!

We will be bringing more information to you on other speakers in the coming weeks!
