is in the order of the day. Recent years have witnessed unparalleled interest
in neurological and mental disorders, leading to a plethora of findings,
new technologies, major research initiatives and ideas. For each clinical
or basic neuroscience “topic” there is an enormous set of
data, and hence a major challenge is to continuously pinpoint what may
fruitfully advance knowledge and ultimately help the individual and society.
The perception of this need has been the driving force behind the concept
of the Congresses on Brain, Behavior and Emotions, now entering the international
The scientific program that follows
represents our views on which are the core issues in today’s neuroscience.
We cannot be thankful enough to the support of the impressive group of
speakers who will be sharing with the audience their recent research findings
and joining stimulating discussions that shall provide much needed guidance
to foster understanding of the human brain.
We invite delegates to vividly interact
with speakers and neuroscientists showing ongoing research in poster and
platform presentations, thus making this Congress a memorable scientific
event in a stimulating atmosphere. Montreal is rightly seen as a city
where neuroscience excels and thus a unique place to jointly build a meeting
faithful to the exciting times we live in brain research and the understanding
of human and animal behavior.
Welcome to Montreal and have a great

The Story of “Brain”
When “Brain” was born in 2004 in Brazil,
some 400 psychiatrists and neurologists were in attendance. The 9th edition
of “Brain” in June 2013 counted over 3,000 Latin American physicians
and 500 international delegates.
In 2014, the success story will continue and you should plan to be part of it!
In it’s 10 edition, “Brain” will go international and launch
its first World Congress outside of Latin America in beautiful Montreal, Canada.

What People Say About “Brain”
meeting provides a forum for both, discussions at the interface of several scientific
disciplines which are dedicated to understanding the basis of human behavior
and emotions, and for developing novel and better treatments for patients affected
with these disturbances in these domains.”

future of brain disorders will be an integrated approach to identifying convergent
phenotypes and molecular targets. The congress on Brain, Behavior and Emotions
is a unique opportunity to bring together research and clinical information
aligned with this convergent future direction.”
