45th meeting of the European Brain and Behaviour Society (EBBS)

Du 6 septembre 2013 au 9 septembre 2013

Dear colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to attend our 45th meeting of the European Brain and Behaviour Society (EBBS), which will be held September 6-9, 2013 in Munich. Being the oldest international neuroscience society, founded in 1968, the main purpose of the EBBS is to stimulate the exchange of information between scientists interested in the relationship of brain mechanisms and behaviour, in its broadest sense. Thereby this meeting is welcoming both basic scientists and clinicians, and is the ideal meeting point for everybody studying the interplay of the brain, behaviour and disease. The meeting is actively supported by the Munich Center for Neurosciences – Brain & Mind (MCN) of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU), which is a network comprised of all local groups and disciplines with interests related to neurobiology, cognition and “brain and mind”.
