S11  Breaking News

Marc Spehr (Aachen)

Live Discussion: Wednesday, March 24, 2021, 17:00 - 18:00h

Students had the choice to either register with a poster presentation or apply for an oral communication. The program committee has selected the young investigator presentations from these submissions and assigned them either to a symposium or to the Breaking News symposium. For the second time, the NWG will award three prizes (500, 300, 200 €) for student participants at the Göttingen 2021 meeting - the Breaking News' Best Paper Awards. The prizes will be given to three young scientists who present the best talks in the Breaking News symposium. Criteria for selection are the novelty of the findings which are presented and their potential impact on future research and the quality of the presentation, both the speech and the slides. A jury will pick the awardees, and the awards will be announced on the website and in Neuroforum. The following students were selected to give a short communication in Symposium 11 – Breaking News:
