7th International Congress
Kraków, September 7-10,2005
The Polish Neuroscience Society has the pleasure to invite you to
participate to the 7th International Congress of the Polish Neuroscience
Society which will be held at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland,
from September 7 to 10, 2005.
The Polish Neuroscience Society organizes international congresses every
second year and they provide a forum for active neuroscientists from Poland
and other countries working on many aspects on the nervous system, on
different animal models, as well as on the human brain. The 7th
International Congress shall comprise plenary lectures, symposia and poster
We are especially glad to host the 7th International Congress participants
at the Jagiellonian University, the oldest in Poland and one of the oldest
universities in the world. We are also fortunate to have the city of Kraków
as the venue for the Congress. As an historic centre and the cultural heart
of Poland, Kraków offers all the modern amenities of a popular tourist city,
as we hope all participants will be able to discover for themselves.
The conference will be held in the Third University Campus, recently built
and still under construction. The First Campus, located in old Krakow,
encloses the University's historic buildings, including Collegium Maius, the
oldest University building, where we will hold the Welcome Reception.
We hope that the Congress will provide an opportunity for all participants
not only to present and discuss their recent scientific data and exchange
information with others but also to visit magical places in Kraków.

The whole abstract (i.e. title, author, affiliation and text) should not
exceed 1600 characters, including spaces. On-line form will automatically
count number of characters and will inform you. Do not use line breaks (i.e.
enter) at the end of the text - it takes 2 characters. Such a "white spaces"

Do not use Greek characters and signs, spell them out (alpha, gamma, etc.).
Use of unusual fonts (such as Symbol) will result in weird characters in

italic or special symbols in your original text. Simply edit your abstract
