Our Fascinating Brain

MATCHPOINTS CONFERENCE
5–7 MAY 2022
AARHUS UNIVERSITY, DENMARK

Experience neuroscience at its finest when some of the world’s leading experts visit Aarhus University for a conference about the brain. The conference is called Our Fascinating Brain because the brain truly is an extraordinary organ. The brain is the home of our consciousness, our thoughts, our language, our ability to move around, to learn, to memorise and to reflect. In short: the brain is what make us human beings.

MatchPoints 2022 is your chance to experience prize-winning researchers present their cutting-edge research. All presenters have been carefully selected for their abilities to educate and inspire. The conference features a large number of researchers from medical sciences as well as researchers from the humanities, political science, and the technical and natural sciences.

The fascinating two-day academic programme features 16 workshops within four main topics: the molecular brain, the plastic brain, the emotional brain and the diseased brain. What can reptiles tell us about our emotions? Which regions of the brain are responsible for pleasure and love? Can we walk our brains younger? These are just some of the compelling questions that more than 60 experts from Denmark and abroad will present and discuss with you.

On Saturday 7 May, the third day of MatchPoints 2022, Moesgaard Museum will be an epicenter of neuroscience for the entire family with brain scientist and TV-host Peter Lund Madsen guiding the audience through a day called "Hjernen gennem 100.000 år". The event is organized by Aarhus University, Aarhus People’s University, Aarhus Municipality and is supported by Lundbeckfonden.
