Sunday, 8 July 2018

19:00 - 22:30

An evening at the Berlin Museum of Medical History: the German Contribution to the History of Neuroscience

Venue: Berlin Museum of Medical History at the Charité, Charitéplatz 1, 10117 Berlin
Host: FENS History Committee
Contact Person: Mathilde Maughan
Email: history@fens.org 

The seminar will focus on Germany's important contribution to neuroscience in the 19th and 20th centuries. Particular emphasis will be placed on the emergence of neurophysiology and biophysics, and on how exchanges between scientists from Germany and the rest of Europe contributed to progress in these fields. These at times unlikely exchanges had an impact not only on scientific research but also on other disciplines, such as the influence of Herman von Helmholtz on the eminent French writer, Marcel Proust.

The seminar will be followed by a standing buffet and tour of the museum.

Registration required. Please register here.

Featured talks by FENS-Kavli Scholars will inspire discussions centered around emerging topics in neuroscience with direct relevance for society.

FENS Forum attendees are highly welcome to participate in these engaging discussions.

Come join in communicating neuroscience to the general public!

Science Café locations in Berlin and the programme (speakers, title of talks) will be available for download shortly.
