If you are an African brain or brain-related scientist or interested in African neuroscience and eager to build connections and collaborations with African researchers, mark your calendars for the 14th International Conference of the Society of Neuroscientists of Africa (SONA). It will be held in Lagos, Nigeria, from 24-28 March 2019, and organized in conjunction with the Neuroscience Society of Nigeria (NSN), which will also hold its 17th Annual NSN Conference during this time.

The SONA Conference will feature the best neuroscience in Africa as well as from abroad. It already offers an impressive list of confirmed speakers (see below).
