The 9th Annual Oxford Neuroscience Symposium was held on the 21st March at the New Mathematics Institute.  This is the showcase for all the ground breaking research from across our Neuroscience community.  This year’s symposium featured a number of new initiatives including an industry talk and a whole session devoted to rapid –fire ‘Flash’ talks by early career researchers.

The guest speaker David Nutt, Imperial, gave a fascinating and thought provoking talk “Neuroscience: time for a psychedelic enlightenment?”.

One of the highlights of the day was the Sherrington poster prize, sponsored by Royal Society Publishing, presented by Kia Nobre, Chair of the Oxford Neuroscience Committee.
