Event details

The annual SoNG meeting will take place on 15 September at the serene surroundings of the Avenue Campus please feel free to register an join us. Nice meeting with ample opportunity to spend times with colleagues.


At the XIVth SoNG annual meeting, we will discuss environmental contributions to brain function. In doing this we will define Environment in its widest context providing a broad program. The interesting meeting provides a great opportunity to catch up with old colleagues and introduce new colleagues and ideas to help build new interdisciplinary collaborations that address this increasingly pertinent issue. Thus, whether you are interested in molecular underpinnings of nerve function or societal influences on human behaviour, there is an environmental contribution being played out and this is reflected in our programme. The range of speakers will exemplify the mechanistic insight being provided by distinct experimental approaches, from biology to social sciences. An important consequence of the environment and its ability to drive brain function is its significance in health and disease. Our program, including external and Southampton speakers, will introduce and discuss this aspect in the context of degenerative disease, psychiatric disorders and population-based behaviour. Against this broad approach, we would be delighted to receive abstract submissions to supplement the programme provided by our main speakers and look forward to you all joining us in September.

Invited speakers include, Mario De Bono, Chris Bell, Ed Redhead, Tom Ezard, Herman Wijnen, Leslie Collier with selected abstracts from ECRs.

In keeping with the spirit of the SoNG, the theme will be used to provide the meeting focus, but we encourage contribution from SoNG's wider cohort.
