Event Details


Glasgow Neuroscience Day 2017

Wednesday 18th January

Teaching & Learning Centre, Queen Elizabeth Univeristy Hospital Campus

This annual event brings neuroscientists from the Universities of Glasgow, Strathclyde and Caledonian together with clinical colleagues from the NHS to interact and talk about the latest neuroscience research being carried out in Glasgow. We have talks from Ph.D. students, postdocs and PIs throughout the day (programme is available by clicking HERE), as well as poster presentations, and are delighted that the keynote seminar will be delivered by Professor Tipu Aziz.

'Translational work from the lab to surgery in movement disorders and pain'

Professor Tipu Aziz

Professor Aziz is the founder and head of Oxford functional neurosurgery. His primate work was central to confirming the subthalamic nucleus, and more recently the pedunculopontine nucleus, as possible surgical targets for deep brain stimulation in Parkinson's disease. Professor Aziz's research interests include the role of the upper brainstem in the control of movement, the clinical neurophysiology of movement disorders, autonomic responses to deep brain stimulation, and the use of MR and MEG imaging in functional neurosurgery.

Registration deadline: FRIDAY 13th JANUARY 2017 at NOON.

Abstract submission deadline: FRIDAY 13th JANUARY 2017 at NOON.

If you wish to submit an abstract for a poster presentation please purchase either a student or non-student POSTER PRESENTER ticket. Abstract submission forms are available HERE via dropbox or email Leanne McKay (email: to request a form. Please send all completed abstract forms to Leanne McKay (email: You will receive an email on receipt with further information on poster presentation at the venue. Poster boards sizes are A0 portrait.
