The Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown is located in a beautiful site of 60,000 m2 in an exclusive zone of Lisbon, on the waterfront of Pedrouços, near the magnificent Tower of Belém. This area, where the river Tagus meets the Atlantic Ocean, is of great historical significance as the great Portuguese pioneers sailed from this location to discover the “unknown” in the XV and XVI centuries. The presence of the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown leverages this historical heritage by creating an inspirational link between the discoveries of yesteryear and the epic adventure of scientific research.

5th Champalimaud Neuroscience Symposium
We aim at bringing together researchers working on a broad range of areas in Neuroscience, from cognition to synaptic plasticity. The symposium takes the 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 year’s program 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.
