Picture of Trondheim

A scientific meeting for all neuroscientists in the Nordic and Baltic states. From June 10th to June 12th, 2015, the first Nordic Neuroscience meeting will be held in Trondheim, Norway. 

Nordic Neuroscience is a new conference for neuroscientists in Nordic countries. The objectives of the conference are to open more interactions with neighboring countries and establish networks for future collaborations. Our wish is simply to achieve greater knowledge about what work is carried out in Nordic institutes.
