The 5th Champalimaud Neuroscience Symposium aims at bringing together researchers working on a broad range of areas in Neuroscience, from cognition to synaptic plasticity. This years symposium covers a form of a scientific meeting that includes research at different organizational levels, with different organisms and that apply a wide range of techniques. It is a single-track format so that all participants are exposed to various approaches within Neuroscience. This years programme includes 20 talks by distinguished invited speakers, 7 talks selected from abstracts and three poster sessions with the most recent results of ongoing research around the world. Neuroscience is a relatively young, exciting, and fundamentally interdisciplinary field devoted to the study of the nervous systems from different perspectives. As already identified by the US Naval or Marine Corp Science and Technology, Neuroscience through their Warfighter Performance strategy focus area, studies at the level of cognition and behaviour can highly contribute to the understanding of the brain. This event will bring together top researchers in the field of neuroscience to learn from experts, identify areas of consensus, discuss possible collaborative actions, and identify emerging topics and concerns. Some of the topics that will be addressed during the Champalimaud Neuroscience Symposium will be Neuronal plasticity and its relation with learning and behaviour and Stress and its relation with brain function and behaviour. Both topics can help in understanding of the brain during combat andor training and help in the development of new training programs to train soldiers to better cope with stress, fatigue, repetitive tasks, immobility, etc.
