Santa Llúcia: in 2012, what will be talking about? Neuroscience

From the Biology and Society section (SCB-IEC), in collaboration with the ACCC (Catalan Association of Scientific Communication) and Ciència en Societat Foundation, on December, 14th, at Institute for Catalan Studies site (Carme, 47, Barcelona) we organized a conference addressed to science communicators, who want to update their knowledge in neuroscience.

On the initiative of the Spanish Society of Neuroscience (SENC), 2012 was declared Year of Neurosciences by the Spanish parliament, because, in the month of July, Barcelona will host the biennial meeting of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), the congress that brings together Europe's most neuroscientists.
