At the BBC congress, clinicians, researchers, representatives of patients and pharmaceutical industry interact in the largest national meeting on Brain and Brain Disorders.
The aim being to fill the gap and bridge the different points of view, each session comprises presentations in basic neuroscience, neurology and psychiatry and gives the patients’ associations the opportunity to take an active part in the discussion.
The thematic of the 6th edition of the BBC congress is: “The gene-environment tango in the healthy and diseased brain”.
A better understanding of the relation between our heredity and our environment, socio-cultural, economic or natural, is essential to improve the prevention, the detection and the treatment of brain disorders. Belgian and international experts in Autism, Epilepsy, Narcolepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Endocrine disruptors and Learning and Memory will present their recent findings on this complex interaction. Young researchers will be given the opportunity to present their most recent findings in poster sessions and the 10 better abstracts will be chosen for an oral e-poster session. Moreover, their registration fee will be waived by the BBC.
