Frontiers of Brain Science

Program Theme

The fundamental aim of brain science is to understand how our mind emerges from matter. By unveiling the complexity and dynamics created by the simple molecular interactions which take place within the brain, we will gain an important key to understanding the mind, and ultimately, humanity. With this aim in sight, in the summer of 2015 an unprecedented and extensive three-month program of brain science research will be held in the city of Sendai. This program will consist of three events entitled: 1) Tools and Technologies, 2) Development and Disease, and 3) Memory and Mind.
