SAN 2011 THESSALONIKI - NEWSLETTER 31.5.2011

Thanks to all those who participated in various ways, around 200, to make the Society’s third biennial meeting such a splendid occasion. “It was the smoothest running meeting ever attended”, so many said, a fitting accolade to our Greek hosts to whom we express heartfelt thanks. Their warmth infected both the scientific and social programmes which garnered a response of steady commitment (despite touristic temptations) and enthusiasm from participants.  The quality of the science and discussion was both constructive and impressive, as was the calibre of the young scientists (and historians of science), who are the future of our field.
The meeting was important in many ways for the development of the Society. This was the first meeting where the vision of a full breadth of Applied Neuroscience was fulfilled. The 167 presentations allowed 3 tracks:- practitioner, cognitive/affective neuroscience, methodology and basic neuroscience, together with a mixed-theme poster session which ran throughout the conference. Then the previous biennial meetings :- Swansea 2006, Seville 2008, and the training workshop in Dubrovnik 2009 – had been  held in collaboration with the EU COST action B27 Electric Neuronal Oscillations & Cognition (ENOC), which funded a sizeable proportion of attendees. This was the first meeting without such support.
Two open sessions were called on the question of the promotion of our field, the second by popular request. A summary of the initiatives will be reported on the website separately, as will a summary of the Future Directions panel with which the conference ended, and which had finally to be brought to a conclusion having run for an extra hour and having taken up the lunch break, three hours in all. Again contributions and commitment were impressive.
Many initiatives are already underway to include Special Journal Issues, while all abstracts are with Elsevier for publication in Neuroscience Letters. The editors of the Journal of Neurotherapy will also publish abstracts of the Keynote and Invited presentations along with a small selection of oral and poster presentations.
Discussions are ongoing about the 2013 meeting  as well as possible extended symposia in 2012. Under consideration are further collaborative links with other societies, new website plans, while a new website format has already jumped the gun – please note that this website is a work in progress. Nominations for a restructured and extended Council will be circulated in the forthcoming months.
Thanks must also be extended for the emailed expressions of gratitude afterwards, uncustomary when facing the plethora of demands back on one’s home patch.  But to return to Greece, and when might we return (?!!), again our sincere thanks, and concern for a speedy resolution to the current Greek socio-economic tribulations.

How anti-depressants create brain cell

Scientists have finally discovered how anti-depressants make new brain cells, which could help researchers develop better and more efficient drugs to combat depression.

 

The study by scientists from the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, show that anti-depressants regulate the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) - a key protein involved in the stress response.
