Neuroscience 2018
Neuroscience 2018 under the theme of “New Horizon of Neuroscience” provides a unique opportunity to forge closer links between researchers in different fields and to develop next-generation neuroscientists endowed with a wide perspective.
The Annual Meeting aims at fostering young scientists and promoting collaboration across the globe and various scientific fields including clinical neuroscience.

The Altman Award in Developmental Neuroscience

The Award was established to commemorate the outstanding achievements in developmental neuroscience of the late Professor Joseph Altman, who discovered the adult neurogenesis in the cerebral cortex and received the International Prize for Biology from His Majesty the Emperor of Japan in 2012. Dr. Shirley A. Bayer, Dr. Altman’s widow, offered to make a donation to the JNS to fund the award to honor the scientists in the field of developmental neuroscience. Accordingly, the Award recognizes young researchers who have made remarkable achievements in this field.
