Retrospect 2017

The patrons of the course in 2017.

The patrons of the course in 2017. Their relation to the program will be unveiled during the course.

The Munich Brain Course in 2017 took place from March 31st to April 1st and was held with a revised programme. It was considered important to provide content in a more concentrated form and therefore on only 2 days with no loss of content. The German part (Intensivkurs Neuroanatomie) and the English part (Munich Brain Course) ran in parallel. As in the past, not all neuroanatomical topics can be displayed in one course, so each year has its own focus.
