Description

Wisconsin Symposium on Emotion: Translational Neuroscience and Mental Health

April 16 - 17, 2020

The Wisconsin Symposium on Emotion is an annual conference exploring the frontiers of affective neuroscience. For the past 26 years, the symposium has provided an intellectual container for scienists, clinicians, trainees, students, and others to learn about and discuss the psychobiological mechanisms underlying mental health.

Founded and hosted by University of Wisconsin scientists, Drs Ned Kalin and Richie Davidson, the symposium is a long standing tradition that supports communication across disciplines to further cultivate our collective understanding of the relationship between mind, body, and emotions.

Please join us for the 26th Annual Wisconsin Symposium on Emotion, Thursday and Friday April 16 & 17, 2020. Additionally, there will be a free public talk at 5:00pm on Wednesday April 15th 2020 presented by Dr. Joshua Gordon, Director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).

As always, we will have an outstanding lineup of leading scientists presenting their research, along with in-depth discussions led by our students. The symposium includes breakfast both days, presentations, breakout discussions, Poster Session & Reception, and opportunities to engage with a variety of scholars from programs across the country.

Each year we hear from participants that this meeting, where experienced scientists make a special effort to reach out to trainees, helps forge enduring collegial relationships. We hope you can join us as we deliver lively discussions on the origins of psychiatric illnesses and provide creative insights into new potential treatments.
