Connecting brain and mind: Neuroscience and the future of
psychiatry’ drew a capacity audience to Downing College at the
University of Cambridge on 13 April for the second hosting of the
RCPsych’s now annual event, the Neuroscience Spring Conference.
The beautiful backdrop of Downing College provided a stimulating
environment for a very successful day at the interface between
science and medicine.
The only national conference devoted to the contemporary role of
neuroscience in psychiatry, the event attracted the UK’s top
clinical psychiatrists and leading researchers in neuroscience with
an engaging programme of world class presenters from the UK and the
Psychiatric trainees, medical students and representatives of
patient groups also participated, all brought together to share in
the latest ideas from clinically relevant, cutting edge research on
the human brain and behaviour.
With the aim of fostering collaboration that might speed the
translation of discoveries in research to the benefit of patients,
much time was given over to creating opportunities for networking
and the development of new contacts.
Intense discussion flowed and this contributed to a rewarding
experience for all who attended.
The third edition of this now eagerly anticipated event will be
held in London on Friday 15 March, 2019.
