The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all areas of our daily lives. But, despite the difficult conditions of research and acquaintance of scientists with the results, the student community came together to organize another conference under the auspices of IBRO (International Brain Research Organization) – “NEURONUS 2020”, which took place remotely on December 8-11, 2020 and was organized by the Student Society of the Jagiellonian University in Krakow (Poland). Lectures on the most pressing issues of the nervous system were presented at the conference. In particular, the lectures of world-renowned experts “Neural networks of the brain in the implementation of flexible learning” (Professor Pico Caroni, Friedrich Mischer Institute for Biomedical Research, Switzerland), “Translational neurobiology: from network theories to personalized medicine”, Professor University of Marseille, France), “The effects of COVID-19 on cognitive function and mental health – based on the results of the British experience” (Professor Adam Hampshire, Imperial College London, UK).
The format of presenting the results of student work included online reports with presentations. Separately, the conference participants had the opportunity to watch videos that showed the methodological approaches and the main results of the research. Students of our university Pribolovets K.O. (4th year, group 11) and Latypov K.A. (5th year, group 22) presented two works on the topics: “Analgesia induced by stimulation of the cerebellum under the blockade of γ-receptors activated by peroxisome proliferator” and “Neoangiogenesis as a mechanism development of chemical seizures ”. These reports aroused interest of listeners from Poland, Netherlands and Ukraine.
The positive experience of participation in the international scientific forum gave a new powerful impetus to the ability to present the results of their own research at a significant level, increased responsibility and motivated the further continuation of scientific work.
