Journal of Physiology Neuroscience launches at major international science congress

David Paterson

Neuroscience is one of the biggest bioscience events in the world attracting over 30,000 participants. 2011 is the first year that The Physiolgical Society had attended and we had a significant presence. It was the perfect showcase to launch the dedicated, neuroscience issues of The Journal of Physiology.

Editor-in-Chief, David Paterson, hosted an evening reception for leading scientists attending the meeting. The floodlit Capitol Building and Washington Monument provided the perfect backdrop as David encouraged them all to spread the word about this new home for neuroscience.

The Meeting was also the first opportunity for The Society to roll out our new brand and logo; jealous eyes were cast by our sister societies as the new pop-up backdrop was unfurled.

The stand, which was located in the non-profit section close to the posters, proved a great location to attract passing traffic and hand out copies of the first issue of The Journal of Physiology Neuroscience. David, along with The Journal's Deputy Editor and Senior Neuroscience Editor, were also on hand to outline the remit of the dedicated Journal issues.

The next major meeting The Society will be attending is Biophysics 2012, which takes place in San Deigo 25–29 February 2012.
