We are extremely grateful to The Brain Prize for supporting this event.The Brain Prize is a personal research prize awarded annually by Lundbeckfonden, a leading Danish Foundation, to one or more scientists who have distinguished themselves by an outstanding contribution to European neuroscience and who are still active in research.This means the old systems contain flaws which need attention, some of which are fundamental issues demand a complete infrastructure overhaul.The large and complex programs, such as ID cards, are susceptible to political and ideological shifts, thereby affecting the system’s robustness.Registration fee for all other participants is DKK 2500,-. ABOUT THE FOUNDATIONOnce annually Lundbeckfonden awards The Brain Prize - a € 1 mio. The prize is awarded as an important part of the aim of the Foundation: 'to boost interest in brain research and its results, to stimulate and reward outstanding brain research and to stimulate Danish research through an expanded interplay with other European brain research, and thus to improve the scientific basis for progress in the prevention, diagnostics and treatment of diseases and disorders of the brain and nervous system'.For further information, please contact Janne Axelsen: [email protected] Monday 31.Her studies focus on the genetics behind deafness, and she has published phenotypic descriptions of over 80 different mouse mutants.
For example, an elementary school age child who seems difficult to settle in a classroom and cannot concentrate or refuses to do so might actually be showing the first adolsecent bipolar disorder signs.If there are 1000 people in the total population, and 100 of them get a particular illness at some point during their lifetimes, then the LTP for that illness is 10%, as 10% of the people within the population came down with that illness at some point in their lives.For bipolar disorder, the LTP varies between 0.4% and 1.6% in diverse community studies [DSM-IV].AUDIENCE AND LANGUAGE The meeting is open to participants from Denmark and abroad. ABSTRACTS Participants are invited and encouraged to submit one or more abstracts. In each session, eight participants will have a series of 10 minute's 'one on one conversations'.The meeting is open to junior and senior scientists in the field of basic as well as clinical brain research. Abstracts dealing with topics outside of the main theme of the meeting are also welcome. JUNIOR BRAIN PRIZE A prize of 2.500 Euros will be awarded for the best presentation. REGISTRATION Online on a first come first serve basis - priority will be given to participants submitting an abstract. You will receive an e-mail invoice from Lundbeckfonden.
