From January 31st to February 2nd 2018, the CIN, the University of Tübingen and the University of Uppsala are happy to invite you to our Matariki Winter School & Symposium on “Sex hormones and the brain” hosted at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, University of Tübingen.





The Winter School attendees will have a unique opportunity to learn about the effects of human sex hormones on essential aspects of mental health and disease, including mood, structural and functional brain connectivity, (social) cognition, metabolism and gender from the leading international researchers during four designated symposia.

An honorary lecture will be given by Niels Birbaumer, professor at the University of Tübingen, who inspired and significantly influenced the field of Biological Psychology and Neuroscience. Leading experts on post-partum depression, Vibe G. Frojkaer from University of Copenhagen, and gender differences, Ute Habel from RWTH Aachen University, will present their most important and most recent findings in two keynote lectures.

Honorary and keynote lectures are open to the public.
