Bainstorming Research Assembly for Young Neuroscientists
The 1st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Italian Young Neuroscientists
There was so much NICO at the
, the congress specifically aimed at young researchers under the age of 40 specialized in the field of Neuroscience.
The main goal of this meeting is to encourage young researchers from different laboratories across Italy to meet, connect, collaborate and share in a space where they can exchange their knowledge and ideas, thereby establishing collaborations between groups.
In addition to the large group of NICO's young researchers who attended the meeting, our researcher Enrica Boda (Assistant Professor RTD in Human Anatomy, research group of Physiopathology of neural stem cells ) was a member of the BraYn Scientific committee .
support, the committee awarded 3 different prizes
: one for
the Best Oral Presentation
(500 €) and one for
the Best Poster presentation
For the Best oral/poster presentation on PERINATAL NEUROLOGY (250 €) the committee awarded our researcher Marina Boido - research group Brain develpment and disease - with her talk:
Increasing Agrin Function Antagonizes Muscle Atrophy and Motor Impairment in Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Since 2001, this meeting represented an important event for basic and clinical researchers working on this emerging scientific topic. We will address state-of-the-art approaches in the field of steroids and nervous system, including behavior, epigenetics, genomic and non-genomic actions, the vitamin D, neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders, and the interference among endocrine disruptors and steroid signaling.
