29th ECNP Congress for Applied and Translational Neuroscience

August 10, 2016

Europe's largest meeting in applied and translational neuroscience, the 29th ECNP Congress of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) will take place at the Austria Center Vienna from 17th to 20th September 2016. Between 4,000 and 6,000 psychiatrists, neuroscientists, neurologists and psychologists are expected to attend the Vienna congress.

The 2015 ECNP congress produced some major press stories (see The 2016 congress will include sessions on:
  • Psychedelics and brain function
  • Sleep disorders
  • How stress affects the body
  • Can we slow Alzheimer's Disease?
  • How children's psychology differs from that of adults

#521 The Curious Life of Krill
Krill may be one of the most abundant forms of life on our planet... but it turns out we don't know that much about them. For a create that underpins a massive ocean ecosystem and lives in our oceans in massive numbers, they're surprisingly difficult to study. We sit down and shine some light on these underappreciated crustaceans with Stephen Nicol, Adjunct Professor at the University of Tasmania, Scientific Advisor to the Association of Responsible Krill Harvesting Companies, and author of the book "The Curious Life of Krill: A Conservation Story from the Bottom of the World".
