About 140 neuroscientists and graduate students visited Brock on May 7 for the Southern Ontario Neuroscience Association (SONA) annual meeting.

Participants from nine universities attended the one-day conference, which saw research talks, poster presentations and friendly socializing in Academic South.

The event was a chance to promote Brock’s work in the field of neuroscience, said Stefan Brudzynski, a Brock Psychology professor cross-appointed to Biological Sciences, as well as president of SONA and chair of the event organizing committee.

“It is good for Brock,” he said. “It emphasizes our role in local neuroscience and gives us an opportunity to present what we’re doing.”

Three Brock graduate students gave talks at the conference, he said.

Participating universities were:

  • Brock
  • University of Western Ontario
  • University of Toronto
  • University of Windsor
  • Wilfred Laurier University
  • Queen’s University
  • University of Guelph
  • University of Waterloo
