Puppy Lounge a Hit for Brain Behavior Specialists

The International Behavioral Neuroscience Society (IBNS) 28th Annual Meeting welcomed more than 300 delegates to Cairns for five days of meetings, poster exchange and networking.

Stress breaks proved particularly popular with massages and a puppy lounge for delegates to enjoy cuddles with furry friends.  Funds raised at the puppy lounge will support the Young Animal Protection Society.

This was the 28th Annual meeting for the IBNS and the first time it has been held in Australia.

The IBNS encourages research and education in the field of behavioral neuroscience and has members from 34 countries consisting of scientists, clinicians, teachers, and others with a background and interest in the relationship between brain and behavior.
