SUMMARY

The National Neuroscience Society of Romania (SNN) was founded in 2000 (http://www.snn.ro) by Prof. of Physiology Leon Zagrean at the Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania. At the time, his main research interest was to investigate the changes in electrical brain function in conditions when there was a mismatch between the brain energy demand and the energy supply, like those occurring in brain ischemia and epilepsy. Since then, this translational systems neuroscience approach remained a major driver of SNN activities in the context of an increasing Romanian Neuroscience diaspora. The aim of this symposium is therefore to present the history and developments of this neuroscience field in different research centers across Romania. Selected presentations (together with featured posters from junior neuroscientists) will cover contributions to neuroprotective strategies in hypoxia/ischemia ranging from the neonatal brain to the aged brain, as well as the assessment of excitotoxic mechanism from the local circuit level to the whole brain level. We consider our topic relevant not only for the emerging field of neuroenergetics, but also for neuroscientists interested in the translational perspectives of brain ischemia and epilepsy research.
