The Scandinavian Neuropathological Society organizes a series of symposia called “Northern Lights Neuroscience Symposium”. At the meetings the scientific program focuses on one single topic of significant neuropathological interest. Invited speakers from many different branches of neuroscience present state of the art lectures.
The meetings are held in any of the Scandinavian countries and often we choose places with a spectacular geographical surrounding. In order to facilitate the communication between participants and speakers the number of participants is usually limited to about 150 persons.
The Northern Lights Neuroscience Symposia started as a result of the experience gained from the planning and performance of the Xth International Congress of Neuropathology that was hosted by the Scandinavian Neuropathological Society.

I Bergen Norway 1987: “Myelin Diseases”

III Reykjavík Iceland 1989: “Virus and the Brain”
