Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 4th International Symposium “Oral Neuroscience 2018 in Osaka” will be held at Graduate School of Dentistry in Suita campus of Osaka University on October 7 (Sunday), 2018.

Oral and maxillofacial system has a complex and unique structure and carries out diverse functions indispensable for survival and social life: these include chewing, swallowing, sensory processing, salivation, speech and breathing. Therefore, the field of oral neuroscience covers a variety of research topics from molecular to system levels. Osaka University Graduate School of Dentistry has established this international symposium with the aims to promote integrative exchanges among the researchers in diverse field. In addition, this symposium encourages younger researches to present their works and to communicate with recognized researchers in English. We do expect the participants will enjoy scientific and social programs in Osaka.

We are looking forward to seeing you at “Oral Neuroscience 2018 in Osaka” in the coming October.

Sincerely yours
