The Brain Conference

Brain has published landmark papers in clinical neurology and translational neuroscience since 1878. The Guarantors of Brain aim to promote teaching, education and research in neurology and related disciplines, and we started the Brain Conference in 2021 to further fulfil this mission.

In 2022, the BRAIN Conference will take place online, on 24-25 February.

This two-day conference will feature a wide range of fantastic speakers from around the globe. We have invited a panel of leading scientists and clinicians, at the forefront of their fields, who will curate and chair topic sessions featuring a mix of teaching talks and research presentations. The conference will cover a wide range of neuroscience disciplines, representative of Brain’s publishing remit.

Conference Format

Brain is proud of its broad readership, comprising both clinicians and scientists within the neurosciences. This conference is for our general readership – whether you are a clinician or scientist, a student or senior faculty, working directly with patients or in the wet lab, this conference will have something for you! The conference will be composed of topic sessions, representing a broad range of neuroscience topics. Each session, carefully curated by our Chairs, will feature a clinical teaching talk, a translational research presentation and a basic science research presentation given by invited speakers. We will also select up to two ‘data blitz’ presentations per session from submitted abstracts.

The conference will take place online over two consecutive half-days. The first half-day will be ‘early’ (mid morning to mid afternoon) and the second half-day will be ‘late’ (early afternoon to evening). This will enable us to cover several time zones to engage a geographically diverse schedule of speakers and audience. 

Check back regularly & follow us @Brain1878 for further updates and speaker confirmations. 


Register to catch-up on the whole conference (all talks & posters) until 20th April 2022!

Tickets are £30 for the whole conference.

Public Neuroscience Lecture 2022

“Sleep and Your Brain”

Professor Gina Poe (UCLA)

Why do we need sleep? Does the brain work harder during sleep? What’s the link between sleep and memory?

Join us for this year’s Brain Conference Public Neuroscience Lecture! Professor Gina Poe investigates the fascinating world of sleep, and the role of sleep in key brain functions. As well as being a leading scientist in the world of sleep, she is also a fantastic science communicator! Find out more about Professor Poe’s work.
