Mind the Brain is an annual two-day symposium that is organized by Utrecht University master’s program Neuroscience and Cognition students. 
This year, the dates are set to the 13th and 14th of June, and will be hosted in the Marinus Ruppert building, at the Science Park in Utrecht.

The event consists of keynote lectures, workshops, discussions and other activities, all concerning the rapidly developing field of neuroscience.

Next to this, all students from the research master's program get the opportunity to present their own research.

This symposium welcomes around 200 visitors each day. We welcome students, scientists, and of course everyone else with an interest in neuroscience.

BrainTech: Advances in Neurotherapy - June 13th & 14th


We are very happy to finally introduce the theme for the upcoming 14th edition of the Mind the Brain Symposium: BrainTech - Advances in Neurotherapy! 

Neuroscience and technology have only recently been combined into the field of neurotechnology. This area of research is developing very fast and is a promising new player in the field of therapeutics. Various techniques, such as Brain Computer Interfaces, Deep Brain Stimulation, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or Virtual Reality are being widely investigated and used as neurotechnological therapies for several neurological diseases.

During this year’s Mind the Brain symposium, we want to show you its possibilities for today and for the future. 

Curious about what’s next? Be sure to check our website and Facebook page and be the first to know about keynote speakers and other announcements!
