Maurizio Popoli & ECNP

"I only wish there was a little more attention in the general public to the matter of neuropsychiatric disorders..."

Maurizio Popoli is a frequent visitor of the ECNP Congresses. In 2016 he gave a lecture in a symposium on social stress and psychopathology (S.01). In the video below he talks about his daily work on the effects of stress and the ECNP Congress.

The webcast of Dr Popoli's talk on 'Stress and antidepressants: time-dependent changes in synaptic function and brain architecture' is available here.

For the 30th ECNP Congress in Paris, there are again a number of symposia related to stress. For example S.03 on 'The role of oxytocin in social behaviour and stress coping' or S.21: The stressed genome in affective disorders: novel target for pharmacological intervention.

ECNP Member survey

At the end of last year we sent out a survey to ECNP members to better understand the member experience and whether there was anything we could do to improve it.

Almost a third of members responded, and the results have been very useful. The most important reasons for becoming a member were to stay updated and be part of a network.

The congress was seen as still the College’s most important activity, followed closely by support of junior scientists and European proposal bids.

The benefits most appreciated were the lower registration fees for the congress and the ability to join an ECNP Network. We very much appreciate the time members took to give us their feedback.

If you have any suggestions for our membership programme, please let us know.
