Welcome to the International Conference on Brain Plasticity linking Molecules, Cells, and Behavior - 4 to 6 Sept 2017


The MCB Brain Plast International Conference on Brain Plasticity linking Molecules, Cells & Behavior is organized by young scientists from the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN), the German Center for Neurodegenerative Disorders (DZNE) and the Otto-v.-Guericke University Magdeburg. It is our goal to bring together research perspectives from molecular, cellular and behavioral brain plasticity. We will therefore welcome internationally known experts with a broad technical and scientific scope to foster vivid discussions and reach translative insights uniquely gained by looking beyond the borders of specialized research disciplines.

The conference will take place in the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology Magdeburg September 2017.
