The Brain Day is ECNP’s most direct channel for reaching the public. Designed to bring the discoveries and excitement of frontier neuroscience to a general audience, the event is held annually in conjunction with the ECNP Congress.
Topics discussed vary per Brain Day, but cover things such as bipolar disorder, autism, schizophrenia and OCD.
