4th Meeting of the ESN / 28th Meeting of the GNP, Berlin 2013: ESN 2013

Invitation

Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure to invite you to the joint meeting of the FESN (Federation of European Societies of Neuropsychology) and the GNP (German Society of Neuropsychology) from September 12-14, 2013 in Berlin, Germany.

The meeting will be hosted by the Freie Universitat Berlin. Its status as one of the leading research institutions in Germany has been substantiated by a successful performance in the federal and state Excellence Initiative. Our conference site will be the Henry-Ford-Building located in the scenery southwest of Berlin. However, the lively centre of Berlin can easily be reached within 15 minutes.

We are happy that four of the leading scientists in Neuropsychology already accepted our invitation to give an Invited Lecture. One of the major topics of lectures and symposia will be the integration of experimental approaches and clinical application in Neuropsychology. Bridging this gap is a challenge, and therefore we like to encourage colleagues from different disciplines – such as Clinical, Cognitive or Computational Neuroscience, Neuroimaging, or Neurolinguistics – to contribute to our meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you to Berlin.

Michael Niedeggen
