Brain and the Environment Event

As scientists interested in the brain, we will all have thought about the important role that the environment has shaping function and behaviour. What we may not appreciate, is what we mean by the term ‘environment’ and that it operates its influence across such a huge scale. In the XVth SoNG annual meeting, we will discuss environmental contributions to brain function in its widest context providing a great opportunity to build new interdisciplinary collaborations that address this increasingly pertinent issue. Thus, whether you are interested in molecular underpinnings of nerve function or societal influences on human behaviour, there is an environmental contribution being played out and this is reflected in our programme. The range of speakers will exemplify the mechanistic insight being provided by distinct experimental approaches, from biology to…
