Cajal Conference


The aim of this series of Conferences is to bring together specialists in a Neuroscience area to present their recent data and to discuss it with international leaders in the field and with young neuroscientists in an open, informal atmosphere. The Cajal Conference and the SENC meeting take place on alternate years (Cajal Conferences on even years and SENC meetings on odd years).

The Conference is sponsored by SENC and it can be proposed and organized by any member, or team of members, following its call. Travel fellowships will be offered to stimulate the assistance of young scientists.
