WCNP 2022 – 33rd Annual Meeting


Welcome to our new website!
This new design is intended to make this site easier for our users, but still holds all of the information you need for the WCNP conference.
Please take a look at all of the conference details or revisit our past conferences.

The Winter Conference on Neural Plasticity is concerned with all aspects of neural plasticity: from development to aging, from learning and memory to pathology, from molecular to behavior, from invertebrates to humans. The Organizers seek to provide stimulating scientific sessions in a beautiful tropical setting. Symposia are held in the mornings and evenings and feature extensive discussion as the number of attendees is typically less than 100. Ample free time is provided in the middle of the day for relaxation, informal discussion and recreation. The meeting site is an ocean front hotel offering all the amenities of a tropical resort.
