It was a great incredible experience to organise and be a part of the very first Munich Brain Day – an initiative, spearheaded by the Munich Center for Neurosciences and driven by David Keays, aimed to bring together the diverse and vibrant neuroscience community in Munich, fostering interdisciplinary collaborations and knowledge exchange.
The event, held at the MPI for Biological Intelligence, featured 11 dynamic speakers who presented their research on a wide range of topics, including cellular and molecular neuroscience, neurodevelopment, systems neuroscience, and cognition. The event also featured an engaging data blitz and poster sessions, where students and postdocs had the opportunity to showcase their innovative work.
Our very own Laila Khorasani presented a poster demonstrating her recent work of combining visual and mechanosensory stimuli to study multisensory evidence integration in larval zebrafish.
The day concluded on a high note with beers, fantastic Australian rock music, and a sense of anticipation for the second edition of the Munich Brain Day.
