Find out about the highlights of the scientific program as well as the exciting social events that will take place at the FENS Forum 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.

The FENS Forum of Neuroscience is the largest international neuroscience meeting in Europe, involving all neuroscience societies members of FENS, and held every two years on even years. FENS Featured Regional Meetings are national or regional scientific meetings organized by member societies, alone or in partnership between them, which receive FENS support and label. They are organized every two years, on odd years.
