On Thursday, November 24, 2016, two Austrian societies (ANA and INGE St.) invited to the Opening-Event of the newly founded “Local Chapter Graz” in the Meerscheinschlössl in Graz. The event marked the official start for the “Local Chapter Graz” with planned regular seminars, beginning in January 2017. The event was opened by Peter Holzer (INGE St. President) and Sigismund Huck (ANA Vice President) who introduced and presented an overview on activities of the INGE St. and the ANA, respectively. Afterwards, scientific talks were given by Christof Körner (Institute of Psychology, University of Graz, “Fixation-based analyses: Co-registration of eye movements with EEG and fMRI”), Gernot Müller-Putz (Institute of Neural Engineering, Technical University of Graz, “Non-invasive EEG-based hand/arm control”), and by Peter Jonas (IST Austria, “Synaptic mechanisms of pattern completion”).

On February 16, the Local Chapter has held it's (2018) main event: “How to communicate (Neuro-)Science”
(17.00 s.t., Meerscheinschlössl, Mozartgasse 3, 8010 Graz).  Here you can find a brief summary. Highlights of the meeting was a guest lecture by Rupert Lanzenberger (Neuroimaging labs, Medical University of Vienna) and a presentation by Birgit Dalheimer (ORF Ö1) on "how to communicate (Neuro)Science". Therafter there was ample opportunity for networking with food and drinks.

The research core area Brain and Behaviour at the University of Graz aims to combine behavioural and neuroscientific methods in a multimethod and interdisciplinary research effort to shed further light on this issue. We combine modern imaging technologies and up-to-date brain-stimulation techniques with innovative as well as classic behavioural research methods and measurements. This approach empowers us to provide answers to pressing societal challenges. In today’s society achievement and knowledge are crucial for development and success. To excel, competencies have to be identified, harnessed, supported, and preserved. At the same time, people’s health and well-being has to be considered, protected, and if necessary restored.
