The 2014 Oxford Neuroscience Symposium was held on the 26th march at the Oxford examination Schools.  This year the event attracted over 350 delegates who enjoyed a first rate programme of talks and poster presentations representing high quality research from across the Oxford Neuroscience community.  The guest speaker Prof Francesca Happe, from the Institute of Psychiatry in London, gave an informative and inspiring talk entitled “Autism: why study the mind if genes and synapses are causal?”

The Sherrington Poster Prize was this year won by Sukhvir Wright from NDCN who received a £150 Amazon voucher for her poster on ‘Autoantibodies to the NMDAR and seizure susceptibility in mice’. Runner up prizes of a £50 Amazon voucher each went to; Sana Suri (Psychiatry) for her poster ‘Reduced cerebrovascular reactivity in young APOE e4-carriers’ and to Joram Van Rheede (NDCN) for his poster ‘Sensory-evoked spiking behaviour emerges via an experience-dependent plasticity mechanism’

Future symposium dates are 25th March 2015, 23rd March 2016 and 22nd March 2017
