The Neuronus Neuroscience Forum, set to take place on 25-27 April 2024, serves as an international and interdisciplinary conference hosted at the renowned Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. Its primary aim is to establish a dynamic platform for researchers across different career stages, facilitating the open exchange of ideas and experiences drawn from diverse corners of the globe. Attendees are provided with a unique opportunity to unveil their research findings, often marking a significant milestone in their professional journeys. Complementing this, the event organizes a range of career-enhancing workshops and networking events. The conference program comprehensively covers various facets of neuroscience, shedding light on the latest research trends and serving as a source of inspiration for all scientists embarking on innovative projects.

The main goal of the conference is to provide an opportunity for researchers to share their latest findings, knowledge and experience, as well as to make valuable connections with scientists representing different fields of neuroscience. We will encounter reflections on the neurobiological basis of love and on the role of the visual cortex in blind people. We will also learn about the impact of a healthy lifestyle on intelligence or the ageing process.

The event programme includes four thematic blocks – Cognitive Neuroscience, Biological Neuroscience, Computational Neuroscience and Medical Neuroscience. The first of these presents psychophysiological research, related to the processing of emotions or perception. The second block is the study of the basic mechanisms of neuroscience, such as the basis of neurodegenerative diseases. The Computational block focuses on research in neuroinformatics, such as the development of artificial neural networks. The last block presents issues of neurology and psychiatry and clinical cases of diseases of the nervous system.

The schedule includes oral presentations, poster sessions and plenary lectures by experts in the fields of research on the functioning of the nervous system. This year the invitation was accepted by Quentin Huys (Max Planck Institute, Germany), Sebastian Haesler (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium), Jim Haxby (Dartmouth College, USA), Andrew Holmes (University of Newcastle, USA), Gaia Novarino (Institute of Science and Technology, Austria), Katharina Wulff (Umeå Universitet, Sweden) and Phlippe Schyns (University of Glasgow, Scotland).

The conference will take place from 25th to 27th of April 2024 at the Auditorium Maximum of the Jagiellonian University. On the day before the conference (24th of April) there will be organized workshops for young scientists on scientific data analysis and career-building, providing a unique opportunity to gain valuable experience and broaden your skills.
