For the third time, leading neuroscientists from Europe and the USA will host this unique forum exploring the latest neuroscience research with reference to treatments of mental disorders including autism, depression, personality disorders and attachment disorders. Implications on clinical and developmental perspectives of these psychopathologies will be discussed. This will be an interdisciplinary platform to have a dialogue between basic science and clinical practice, and is a vital research and networking opportunity for researchers and clinicians with an interest in the social brain.

The conference will build upon previous ones but specifically aims at deepening clinical understanding of the role of the social brain when working with children, adolescence and adults. It will provide an integrative framework to think about interventions in mental health combining current state of the art clinical neuroscience and developmental disorders.
