Labroots is excited to present the 5th annual event in the Neuroscience Virtual Event Series!
The human brain is thought to be the most complex object in research. A hundred billion neurons, close to a quadrillion connections between them, and scientists are trying to figure out how it all fits together. Neuroscience aims to understand how a single organ can control the entire body, from immune response to heart rate, from movement to learning and feeling. Neuroscientists work within a much wider scope than ever before, studying the cellular, functional, evolutionary, computational, molecular, cellular and medical aspects of the nervous system. And with new tools and technologies constantly being developed, the growth of knowledge of the brain is increasing exponentially.
Neuroscience 2017 (free to attend) aimed to help advance knowledge of the brain and nervous system by bringing together research scientists, principal investigators, lab directors, clinicians and medical professionals from around the world to discuss and learn about the latest research and technologies in the field.
The following topics were discussed at this years event:
Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global neuroscience community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.
By participating in this virtual event and watching webcast presentations, you can earn Free Continuing Education (CE) and/or Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits. To earn educational credits, you must view an entire presentation. Following the presentation you must click on the educational credit link provided for that particular speaker and follow the required process. Once you have completed the process, you will receive a certificate for the educational credit.
