BrainHack@Ghent will take place on April 12-13th at the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, Ghent.
The event is now accepted as part of the Doctoral Training Programme. This means that PhD students in Psychology and Life Sciences can include BrainHack in their curriculum.


The purpose of BrainHack is to bring together brain enthusiasts with varying backgrounds and skills to build relationships, learn from one another and collaborate on projects related to neuroscience during two days of intense interaction. Participants can either bring their own project/question and recruit a team of collaborators, or come to learn methods, develop skills and collaborate with other participants.
Participants will receive advice on processing from a team of experts including Russell Poldrack, Danilo Bzdok, Camille Maumet, Roberto Toro, Daniel Margulies, Ben Jeurissen and Dante Mantini during the two days.

For PhD students of Ghent University, the registration fee is €70. For all other participants, the registration fee is €90.
