Neuronus IBRO Neuroscience Forum

Neuronus 2016

NEURONUS 2016 IBRO & IRUN Neuroscience Forum was held on April 22-24th 2016 in the Auditorium Maximum of the Jagiellonian University, in the city centre of Krakow. It featured a very intensive 3-days program with 6 plenary lectures, 13 oral sessions and 3 poster sessions, including over 60 speakers and 150 poster presenters. The meeting was attended by about 450 neuroscientists affiliated in 18 countries.

In 2016, a special issue entitled 'Neuronus' has been published by Advances in Cognitive Psychology (volume 12, issue 4).
