SWAN – Symposium of Western Australian Neuroscience
The annual SWAN – Symposium of Western Australian Neuroscience – held over two days on 29th – 30th November 2018 at the Harry Perkins Institute in Nedlands was a great success.
International, national and local thought leaders presented their latest findings on a variety of topics, including Dr Dan Burns from the USA who gave an interesting public lecture on Dementia for the Allen Roses Memorial Lecture, Professor Manny Nokes from CSIRO who gave a public lecture on ‘mind and diet’ and Professor Allan Kermode from the Perron Institute who spoke about MS and Myelin disorders.
Professor Lindy Fitzgerald, head of Neurotrauma research at the Perron Institute, and A/Professor Jenny Rodger, head of Brain Plasticity Research at the Perron Institute and students were a part of the organising committee who created a well run and successful symposium.
