RDN Colloquium Schedule 2016 - Young Scientist Colloquium

In June 2016 we will restart the RDN-Colloquia in a new format.
Young neuroscientists from the RUB will present their research work in short talks.
One topic- 3 to 4 talks from different working groups.

All RDN-colloquia will take place at 16.00 ct in the IGSN seminar room FNO 01/117.
