The congress met very enthusiastic reception from the Belgian Neuroscience community. Over 80 participants gathered in the building of a beautiful old Franciscan monastery which currently hosts the Irish College in Leuven. We had two distinguished keynote speakers – Pascal Fries from ESI Max Planck institute for neuroscience and Rainer Goebel from Maastricht University. Over the lunch break the participants had the chance to discuss their posters, about 40 in total, and get feedback from the speakers and fellow participants. Additionally, some participants from the Netherlands also attended.
