Neuroscience 2014 Attendees Share Science From Around the Globe
More than 31,000 neuroscience researchers, clinicians, and advocates traveled to Washington, DC, in mid-November to take part in Neuroscience 2014, the world’s largest meeting focused on scientific discovery related to the brain and nervous system.
More than 15,000 scientific presentations showcased innovative advances in techniques and valuable new research about brain structure, health, disease, and treatments. In addition to the posters and scientific lectures, the meeting featured professional development workshops, networking functions, and 537 exhibiting companies displaying the latest scientific products.
As the largest source of emerging news about brain science and health, the meeting featured 10 news conferences with more than 50 neuroscientists presenting findings on a wide variety of topics including new technologies, the science behind addiction, potential treatments for spinal cord injuries, and advances in stem cell research. Each year the annual meeting brings the field a swell of public attention through publications, websites, and radio and television broadcasts around the world, including Korea, China, India, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and all points across the United States.
Some meeting presentations are available online, including:
