NeNa (Neurowissenschaftliche Nachwuchskonferenz) is an annual junior neuroscientist conference organized by doctoral students from the vibrant neuroscience community of Tübingen.

We aim to accommodate broad interests including cellular, molecular, behavioral, cognitive and theoretical neuroscience. NeNa provides young scientists from Tübingen and elsewhere with a low-threshold opportunity to present their work in posters and talks, discuss it with their peers as well as with the leading scientists we invite each year as keynote speakers.

In previous years, we were lucky to host world-leading researches such as Nicky Clayton, Huib Mansvelder, Suzana Herculano-Houzel, Günther Palm, Wolfgang Kelsch, Stefan Treue, Eve Marder, Colin Blakemore, Miguel Nicolelis, Octavian Voiculescu, Simon Jacob, Birgit Derntl, Shani Stern and Amy Arnsten.

As the Covid-pandemic is unfortunately not over yet, the NeNa conference will still be hosted online in 2021. The online talks will be followed by an in-person social evening get-together of conference participants in Tübingen! (Format subject to Covid-regulations)

For NeNa 2021, we are looking forward to keynote lectures from Emily Cross, Nelson Totah and Yevgenia Kozorovitskyi! (see speakers)
