The Donders Discussions is an international, two-day Cognition and Neuroscience conference by and for PhD students. It takes place in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, home of the Donders Institute. Every year, we are hosting attendees from institutes both within and outside of the Netherlands. In this special 10th edition we will focus on the future of the neuroscience, in a multi-disciplinary approach, covering from molecules to behaviour. Every speaker is asked to present their work from this perspective, showing the trends in their respective fields. Check out our program here.

The 10th edition of Donders Discussions will take place on the 26th and 27th of October, at De Hemel, in Nijmegen. Sign up now and join us!
