The Program includes invited papers and posters on the Italian heritage in the neurosciences and special sessions dedicated to the contributions of Camillo Golgi and Santiago Ramón y Cajal, Nobel Laureates in Physiology or Medicine (cited in recognition of their work on the structure of the nervous system) in 1906.
