September 21-­22, 2017  

University of Helsinki, Main Building, Fabianinkatu 33 (Small lecture hall, 4th floor)

Welcome to the Annual B&M Student Symposium organized by the B&M Student Council!

This year’s symposium will cover many current topics of neuroscience including therapeutic use of psychedelic drugs, large scale brain dynamics, acid sensing ion channels and neural networks of the retina and the inhibitory circuitry of the brain.

In addition to B&M students and supervisors, we welcome other interested researchers and MSc./PhD students to this meeting. Registration to all lectures of the symposium is free. 

Credits: 1 ECTS credit for participation in all lectures and workshops + 1 credit for a poster presentation at the symposium.
