On August 30th, I attended the 2013 Neuroscience held by:
And it was held at the new Roslin Institute, which looks like this:
I had to wake up early for this one. 3am!! and took a taxi into Foresterhill (ARI) to get the bus at the IMS. So, I was about to go on the bus and realised my headphones were missing. So when the bus was in Dundee, we had a stop in Tescos and bought a headset there! £5 for a set of headphones!! I got reduced Sony ones but they’re not as good as my ones.
On our way to the Roslin institute our bus got a little lost – City of Edinburgh Council, sort out your signs please. We got a little lost and this IS a top research base. People on the bus from Waverley station went here, there and everywhere to the old Roslin. So we weren’t the only ones taking detours in the Lothian / Midlothian countryside.
All the talks were interesting, My favourites were Dr Rachael Jack from Glasgow University and her computer generated faces, Dr Akira O ‘ Connor from St Andrews University, Ashleigh Kennedy from Glasgow University, Professor James Ironside from Edinburgh University, Dr Silvia Paracchini from St Andrews University, Dr Laura McCulloch from the host university and Professor Paul Ince from Sheffield University. I do a little something to say though for the plenary talks. In Press 2010 for the literature for both of them? Hmmmm.
Other than that the day was really enjoyable and watching talks given on a variety of topics, I was more than interested with the Inflammation and the Spleen after having a stroke talk.
I would like to say a big thank you to Edinburgh University and all those who helped to organise this successful event.
See you in Glasgow in 2014!
