On Thursday 16 October, the annual Melbourne Brain Symposium will draw on this research activity from Melbourne University. Proudly presented by The Melbourne Neuroscience Institute, University of Melbourne and the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, the event's scientific program includes topics on current neuroscience focused research in Australia and internationally.
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.
If you find the human brain fascinating and want to hear about the latest in neuro-related research, secure your ticket here for the 2014 Melbourne Brain Symposium. Places are limited.
