AWCBR is New Zealand's premier neuroscience gathering. In 2014 it will be held from 23-27 August at the Copthorne Resort Hotel, Queenstown, New Zealand. AWCBR encourages a multidisciplinary approach to neuroscience and is structured around early morning, late afternoon and evening sessions which leave your day free for interaction with other participants while enjoying the pleasures of New Zealand's most popular winter resort (skiing, jet-boating, bungy jumping, paragliding, hiking, rafting or just relaxing).
