Hear from remarkable leaders in the profession, that have travelled from Edinburgh and the U.S to join leading Melbourne professors to speak at the event. Kicking off at 9.00am, there will be eight topics on the day including Understanding Brain Changes in Schizophrenia: Impact of Stress, Drugs and Inflammation on the Developing Brain and Synapse Complexity.

Personally the topic of 'Generating a nervous system in the gut during development and disease' presented by Professor Heather Young from the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience, University of Melbourne sparks my interest.

The event is to be held in the spectacular new Melbourne Brain Centre, home to Australia's largest brain research collaboration.
