Stress & Cognition Summer School 2020

This event is jointly organized by the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Radboud University, and Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen
and will take place in the week of July 6-10, 2020, on the campus of Radboud University.

The aim of this summer school is to gather together junior and senior scientists to promote integration of knowledge, theory, and methodology across different levels of analysis. A series of high-profile speakers will address recent developments on the impact of stress on cognitive functions such as learning and memory, illustrate different methods and findings, and discuss how the molecular, cellular, and functional effects of stress may trigger or precipitate neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

This summer school is targeted at national and international Master’s and PhD students, as well as postdocs who work on a related topic and wish to learn about the state-of-the-art and cutting-edge developments in knowledge and skills related to animal or human research into stress and its clinical implication. The program will consist of lectures, lab tours, discussions in small groups, and a variety of social activities to get to know the beautiful city of Nijmegen as well as the other participants.
