The Brain Center Rudolf Magnus performs pre-clinical and clinical research in the field of neuroscience.
One of research missions is to discover and delineate mechanisms and processes which are fundamental to the development of neural systems and to the control of behavior. The goal is to unravel the pathogenesis and thereby provide newer treatment modalities for various neurological and psychiatric diseases. The institution also teaches basic neuroscience and pharmacology at bachelor and master levels.
The idea is to program an invited speaker and to make a selection from the list of abstracts submitted. This session will be organized in collaboration with The Dutch Pharmacological Society, NVF
and focus on the current developments in understanding the pathogenesis and the pharmacological treatment modalities for various neurological and psychiatric diseases.
