Sensational Biology

Somatic sensation encompasses all sensation felt after stimulation of the body, such as touch, temperature, limb movement and pain. The international symposium "Sensational Biology” will bring together leading reseachers on somatic sensation to discuss the most recent developments and concepts. The setting will also provide students and young researchers with ample opportunity to interact and engage with experts in the field.
