Neuronus IBRO Neuroscience Forum

Neuronus 2013

NEURONUS 2013 IBRO & IRUN Neuroscience Forum was held on May 9-11th 2013 in the Auditorium Maximum of the Jagiellonian University, in the city centre of Krakow. It featured a very intensive 3-day program with 6 plenary lectures, 13 oral sessions and a poster session, including over 60 speakers and over 80 poster presenters. The meeting was attended by circa 400 neuroscientists affiliated in 16 countries. Moreover, it was opened with ‘Adolf Beck’s Memorial Session’, which was organized to commemorate 150th birthday anniversary of the EEG pioneer born in Krakow.

As the emphasis during NEURONUS Forums is put on the development of young scientists, this year edition of neuroscientific events was accompanied by ‘Meet Your Speaker - Scientific Career Opportunities Session’ and ‘Publish or Perish - Introduction to Academic Writing and Reviewing Session’.

In 2013, a special issue entitled 'Neuronus' has been published by Advances in Cognitive Psychology (volume 9, issue 4).
