The Cambridge Clinical Neuroscience and Mental Health Symposium starts today, with Press authors ready to speak on the most up-to-date research.
Organised by Cambridge Neuroscience, whose mission is to increase our fundamental understanding of brain function and enhance quality of life, the Symposium is a highly significant event for all neuroscientists. The Symposium connects the varied and vast areas of neuroscience research and teaching that takes place across the University of Cambridge and affiliated institutions and is vital to furthering the aims of Cambridge Neuroscience.
This year, the Symposium will focus on common disorders that have a large impact on society. There is an exciting line up of local and international speakers, three of whom are Cambridge authors: Ian Goodyer, Peter Barker and Ed Bullmore. The speakers will discuss their research on Addiction, Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Depression, Huntington’s Disease, Mood Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, Obesity, Pain, Parkinson’s Disease, Schizophrenia, Spinal Cord Injury and Stroke.
Today will conclude with a wine reception, sponsored by the Press, followed by a public music recital orchestrated by Dr. Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Composer in Residence at the Department of Psychiatry, Cambridge. The Symposium will close tomorrow with a Cambridge Neuroscience dinner and Ceilidh Dance.
