ECNP Congress

The annual ECNP Congress is Europe’s premier scientific meeting for disease-oriented brain research, annually attracting more than 5,000 psychiatrists, neuroscientists, neurologists and psychologists from around the world. Join us at #ECNP2023!

ECNP is an independent scientific association dedicated to the science and treatment of disorders of the brain. It is the largest non-institutional supporter of applied and translational neuroscience research and education in Europe. View website.

Besides the congress, ECNP organises a wide range of scientific and educational activities, programmes and events across Europe, promoting the exchange of high-quality experimental and clinical research in applied and translational neuroscience and fostering young scientists and clinicians. View agenda.

Meet the keynote speaker

Sheena Josselyn, Canada, is interested in understanding how the brain encodes, stores and uses information and her lab is focused in understanding how specific neurons are recruited or allocated to an engram, and how neuronal membership in an engram may change over time or with new experience.

She will give the Keynote Lecture 'Making and breaking memories' on Sunday 7 October.
