The 4th Conference of Mediterranean Neuroscience Society (MNS)

It is our pleasure to announce the 4th Conference of the Mediterranean Neuroscience Society, from September 30 – October 3, 2012. As decided in the General Assembly in Alexandria in 2009, this conference will be held in Istanbul, an amazing city covering both sides of the Bosphorus. It is one of the most intriguing cities worldwide, both geographically, connecting Europe with Asia, and historically, since it housed various civilizations. This is evidenced by the many names Istanbul has had in the past, including Lygos, Byzantium, New Rome, and Constantinople.

We have selected the conference venue with special care, the historical Military Museum, located in the heart of Istanbul (Harbiye). Items were collected from the Saint Irene Church by the Armory Marshal Ahmed Fethi Paşa and the museum was opened in 1846. It was the first modern museum building of that time. The Military Museum presents a history of military change and development from the past to the present and showcases a wide-ranging collection of about 55,000 objects. Kindly note that The MNS, the N€uromed consortium, and the ISIS consortium will provide stipends for young qualified researchers.
