Animal experimentation and the search for alternatives

The “Three Rs” continue to shape scientific research across the EU and beyond. In this context, the search for alternatives to animal models increasingly influences the development of research projects. At the same time, the importance of employing the correct model remains key to the reliability and utility of any results.
This event was organised by the CARE Committee at the FENS 2020 Virtual Forum.

The wonder that is our brain: how and why we study it

Sensing, feeling, moving, smelling, remembering… The brain controls every aspect of our body. It is the most complex organ, and works like billions of tiny computers at lightning speed.
But how can we study such a complex organ? This educational video aims at explaining how and why we study the brain to younger audiences.
This video has been developed by FENS-CARE.
