7th Annual Canadian Neuroscience Meeting, Toronto, May 20-24, 2013
Date:5/16/2013

Top neuroscientists from Canada and around the world are meeting next week in Toronto. The Seventh Annual Canadian Neuroscience Meeting will showcase the latest in research findings about the brain, the nervous system and reveal clues to understanding the disorders that affect them.

"Canada is a leader in neuroscience research, and this meeting will showcase the best of neuroscience research done here and around the world," says Sam David, President of the Canadian Association for Neuroscience. He also reminds us that " Neurological conditions or injuries can affect anyone, irrespective of their age, origin or income level. Our role as neuroscientists is to understand the workings of the normal brain and how it malfunctions in injury and disease. In turn, this understanding will be used to help the estimated one in three Canadians who will be affected by a neurological condition in their lifetime. "

This year's public lecture, " The hope and the hype: stem cells for brain repair " by University of Toronto professors Freda Miller and Cindi Morshead, will expose the latest research developments about stems cells in our brains and bodies, and how they could be used to repair injured brains and nerves.

The opening reception will feature presentation of the CAN 2013 Young Investigator Award to Dr. Shayna Rosenbaum from York University, and the Barbara Turnbull award to Dr. Stephen Scott from Queen's University. More details about the prizes and winners can be found on the 2013 prize webpage, at: http://www.can-acn.org/meeting2013/awards

Current research about the influence of heredity on our brain and behaviour, food addiction, the latest in brain imaging techniques and how they are used to help patients today, mechanisms of memory, pain research and Alzheimer's disease are amongst the topics that will be discussed at the meeting.
