Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends, 

"We are proud to present you with our new programme for the next „Mind & Brain" Congress which will be held from June 15th to 18th 2016. in beautiful city of Pula on the croatian seaside.

The programme is comprised of three main topic lines that all have to do with research and clinical work on mind and brain, which are as follows: Neuroinflammation, Neuropsychoanalysis and Neurorepair. Under each one of these are various up-to-date lectures and workshops of world's most prominent and distinguished lecturers and researchers in their own fields.

The main goal of the whole meeting is to combine different disciplines and their specific insights in brain and mind functioning so to be able to open a wide range discussion about future research possibilities between all disciplines presented. This is already achieved in the new and exciting field of Neuropsychoanalysis, and is encouraged between all other disciplines and groups that will participate in the meeting.

As one of the collaborators of the Congress is „Croatian Medical Journal“ all participants of the Congress will be encouraged to present their work in the abstract section, and the best ones will be prompted to publish their valuable work in this journal.

Also, there will be various workshops throughout the Congress, and we would like to highlight one of the workshops, and that is „How to read and write a scientific paper“ which is of special interest to young scinetist, and all others who are interested in publishing their Research, but still do no Know how. Together with that, there will be various physiotherapy courses that can and will help physiotherapists in their everyday work.

We sincerely hope that you can attend this exciting meeting and that we can cooperate in our future clinical work and research! 


The rich itinerary of its three thousand year old history begins and ends with the Roman amphitheatre revealing itself in all its beauty. This is one of the best preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world! Besides the Amphitheatre, while strolling through Pula you will come across numerous monuments of Roman architecture: the Triumphal Arch of the Sergii, Hercules’ Gate and Twin Gates, the Temple of Augustus and Small Roman Theatre...We hope you will take the advantage of many pleasures of Istria and Croatia.

On behalf of the INPC Kuratorium we wish you a warm welcome at the 56th INPC!

Yours sincerely,
Vida Demarin, MD, PhD, FAAN, FAHA, FESO, FEAN
INPC Secretary General
Professor of Neurology
Fellow of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts
