Aberdeen Neuroscience Meeting 2017

Its that time of year again when I attend the SNG.  this time I don’t have to travel 😁 😎

This is some curiosities in the lecture room.

Now this year, the lecture was in one of the main medical lecture theatres.  Previously we have been in the veterinary school lecture hall (Edinburgh), a theatre (St Andrews), meeting facilities with a hot dinner (Dundee), a main hall on the main campus (Glasgow), and finally a lecture hall in the biomedical department, moving to another building for lunch etc (Strathclyde).   Below are pictures of the lecture theatre we were in:

This year was an interesting mix of lectures, but, this year there was a lot of lectures of adipose tissue and the nerves.  This year was about how the nerves speak to each other.  As ever, it was a good meeting.

Until next year

I spotted this late last night on the ATOS Miracles Facebook page.

This was sent to us from  an inside source on dwp intranet
From the DWP intranet page- watch them spin it as working for your welfare you’ve not got the skills etc to get work after years out of the Job market so these employers are wiling to work with dwp to
Enable those without skills to get skills. If you don’t comply we will sanction you, so tesco etc will get free labour again under the guise of being altruistic
When IDS said relentless he meant it. I can just hear him saying the above.
