About Us

NeNa (Neurowissenschaftliche Nachwuchskonferenz - Conference of Junior Neuroscientists) is an annual event organized by doctoral students from neuroscience research groups from Tübingen University. NeNa serves as an opportunity for young neuroscientists to meet and discuss their research projects with peers and more experienced scientists.

Neuroscience is multidisciplinary in nature and because of this attendees are invited from a variety of departments including molecular biology, biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, medicine and computer science. Thereby, exchange between those fields of research is fostered and participants have the opportunity to discuss their research with scientists from various backgrounds.

While the first three NeNa-conferences from 2000 to 2002 were open only to junior neuroscientists from Tübingen, NeNa's scope has been broadened in 2003 and since then has included young investigators from all over Europe.

This year's speakers are Prof. Dr. Suzana Herculano-Houzel of thDepartments of Psychology and Biological Sciences at Vanderbilt University and Prof. Dr. Günther Palm of the Department of Neural Information Processing at the University of Ulm.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the 2017 meeting!
