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

#529 Do You Really Want to Find Out Who's Your Daddy?
At least some of you by now have probably spit into a tube and mailed it off to find out who your closest relatives are, where you might be from, and what terrible diseases might await you. But what exactly did you find out? And what did you give away? In this live panel at Awesome Con we bring in science writer Tina Saey to talk about all her DNA testing, and bioethicist Debra Mathews, to determine whether Tina should have done it at all.
