The History Corner
An exhibition of posters on the European History of Neuroscience displayed at FENS Meetings.
The FENS History of European Neuroscience Committee organises a History Corner during major FENS meetings (the FENS Forum and the FENS Regional Meeting). This is not only the perfect place to learn about eminent neuroscientists and major neuroscience archives, but also where to keep track of the new activities organised by the History Committee, such as the Global Brain Museum (GBM) Project.
A poster competition was held for the History Corner at the FENS Regional Meeting 2019 in Belgrade, Serbia. The selected posters were exhibited first in the Music Gallery of the Kolarac Endowment from 1 to 7 July 2019 and then at the History Corner during the FRM 2019. There was also a best poster prize covering the registration fee to the FRM 2019 and travel to Belgrade.
The winner of the best poster prize is Merve Sevgi Ince, Yuksek Ihtisas University, Turkey for her poster "A Rising Phoenix: Dr. Aysima Altinok". She presented her poster during the History Symposium held at the FRM 2019.
