Unit Science Day, Winter 2017

Unit Science Day, Winter 2017

The Unit held its sixth Science Day on Friday 15th December 2017. Ongoing and future research projects were the focus of discussion, and Unit members and visitors enthusiastically took the chance to offer the constructive criticism that is vital for nurturing collaborative, world-leading research.

There were 13 short talks and 7 poster presentations, all of which were given by the Unit’s students and postdoctoral scientists. Attendees were also treated to a Special Lecture on competition and sharing in computational neuroscience by Dr Stephen Eglen from the University of Cambridge.

Unit Director Professor Peter Brown commented “It was inspiring to see how the creative thinking and innovative experiments of the Unit’s early-career scientists are driving back the frontiers of brain research. It was also excellent to hear from Stephen Eglen as the Unit prepares for the launch of its new resource for open science and data sharing.”
