Aim and Content

The 1st International Brain Research School of Cellular Neuroscience and Oxidative Stress Society was organized by The Department of Biophysics, Medical Faculty of Suleyman Demirel University between 24 August and 4 September 2015 in Isparta, Turkey. 24 National and 6 international participants were in the first school and they were 1 assoc. prof, 13, 11 Ph.D. students and 5 university students. The abstracts of the oral presentation were published in Journal of Cellular Neuroscience and Oxidative Stress ( We have since received a considerable amount of positive feedback encouraging us to organize a fifth congress, with even greater international participation. We have therefore decided to proceed with the organization of the ''2nd International Brain Research School. It will be held between 6 and 12 November 2017. Abstracts of the BRS-2017 will be published in Journal of Cellular Neuroscience and Oxidative Stress. In the school, basic neuroscience lessons such as ions, ion channels and neuron anatomy will be given to all participants. The School was formed to foster interdisciplinary dialog and collaboration among students and faculty and to create new educational and research opportunities unconstrained by traditional disciplinary boundaries.Since the main fields of research conducted by the HSOD Society School of Brain Research– such as epilepsy, Alzheimer, dementia, diabetic neuropathic pain and Parkinson inductions in experimental animals will be taught. In addition, molecular techniques of neuroscience such as patch-clamp, western blot, Fura-2, immunohistochemistry, and antioxidant analyses will be taught the participants. There are too many social activities such as Eğirdir lake tours, handmade carpet museums of Isparta and barbeque party in the congress.

At end of the course, scientific manuscript preparation technique will also be explained to the participants.

Participant limit of BRS-2017 is 30.

I look forward to see you in rose city, Isparta.
