It is my honour to invite you to the XXV Paulo Foundation Medical symposium Neuroplasticity in Medicine in Turku, Finland 11-13th June 2014.

rTMS treatmentNeuroplasticity,  the brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life, is a fascinating phenomenon which already has led to many clinical applications. In the congress, neuroplasticity will be discussed from molecular mechanisms to behaviour by world’s leading scholars.

Turku is the oldest university town in Finland since the establishment of the Academy of Turku in 1640 and the former capital of  Finland, a fascinating combination of both old and new. Today Turku is a gateway of tourism, culture, modern ideas and research between Finland and the rest of Europe.

The time of the congress is usually a pleasant season in Southwest Finland with plenty of sunshine and about 20 hours of daylight. The city has grown on the banks of the river Aura. At summertime the riversides form a common living room for everyone to share. Along the river are located the old centre, harbour and many of the attractions such as the cathedral and the castle as well as several hotels, cafes and restaurants. Turku is also known for it’s beautiful archipelago.

The congress venue is in the newly renovated Åbo Akademi University buildings and the Congress dinner will be arranged in the beautiful Turku archipelago. I believe that the scientific program and social events will fulfill all your expectations.

I look forward to meeting you in Turku.
On behalf of the Congress Organising Committee,


Hasse Karlsson
Congress President
