The Berlin Brain Days 2008, 2009, and 2010 were a great success, and the cooperation of the six Berlin neuroscience training programs will continue in 2011.

The format of the Berlin Brain Days

•    Thematic breadth across the various neuroscience sub‐disciplines
•    Involving international and national experts
•    Providing ample opportunity for doctoral students to present their research in talks and posters
•    Active support by Berlin faculty as hosts and juries

There will be six sessions, each with one keynote speaker and three thematic doctoral talks.

Please note: Doctoral students wishing to give a talk in one of the six sessions will have to attend an obligatory, advanced two-day training course in “How to present my topic to an interdisciplinary audience”.

Course dates: 18 November (Day 1) and 1 or 2 December (Day 2). SAVE THE DATES!
