Message from the President

The workshop on "Immune Influences on Brain and Behaviour" in Brighton was very successful. It was attended very well. New data on neuroimmune mechanisms and their relationship to mental disorders were presented and interesting discussions made the meeting a real exciting experience.
 In conjunction with the workshop a special issue in Psychopharmacology is planned.  Deadline for paper submission is the 30th of September 2014.

Registration is also open for September workshop: "Stress, PTSD & Psychiatric Disorders: From Basic Science to Therapeutic Intervention", 7-8 September 2014, Rehovot, Israel (http://www.weizmann.ac.il/conferences/EBPS2014/)

Dear EBPS members

 Please find below some announcement of meeting and symposia of interest.


Mediterranean Society of Neuroscience

5th Conference of the Mediterranean Neuroscience Society

Cagliari (Italy), June 12-15th 2015.

Call for symposia deadline April 30th 2014


Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors 2014

Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors 2014
23-26 July 2014
Churchill College, Cambridge, UK


Abstract Deadline: Oral Presentations: 3 March   
Poster Presentations: 30 May
Registration deadline: 20 June

This is the third Wellcome Trust conference on nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, following highly successful meetings in 2008 and 2011. nAChRs remain a focus of innovative research: from high resolution studies of the molecular structure and function of this family of ligand-gated ion channels to exploration of their physiological and pathological roles in normal behaviour and disease processes, respectively.  The nAChR 2014 conference aims to cover the spectrum of current research, from molecular, cellular and genetic aspects to behavioural studies.

The successful format of the previous conferences will be retained: An initial set of high profile invited speakers will be complemented by speakers selected from abstract submissions, in order to capture the latest research breakthroughs. In addition, there will be short talks from graduate students and young postdocs. There will be extensive poster sessions, with posters on display throughout the conference.
