20 Years Munich Brain Course 2004-2024

Retrospect 2018

The Munich Brain Course in 2018 took place on March 23rd and 24th. As in 2017, the content was provided in a concentrated form on two days. The German part (Intensivkurs Neuroanatomie) and the English part (Munich Brain Course) ran in parallel. As in the past, not all neuroanatomical topics could be displayed in one course, so each year has its own focus.
