Welcome to the website of the Mind the Brain Symposium 2021

We would like to thank everyone who attended this year's symposium! We think it was a great success and we hope you do too.


Mind the Brain  is an annual initiative from Utrecht University to connect science with society and business in the field of Neuroscience. Students of the Neuroscience and Cognition Master's programme have the opportunity to organise this two-day event.


The 17th edition of the Mind the Brain Symposium, themed 'Brain on Lockdown', took place on 27 & 28 May 2021. Due to Covid-19 regulations, the symposium was held on Gather.Town. Visitors had the opportunity to attend keynote lectures by prominent researchers about the current pandemic and its effects - both biological and mental - on the brain. Furthermore, they could participate in various workshops.
