The 5th Learning and Plasticity Meeting (LaP 2019)


Äkäslompolo, Finland
7-10 April 2019

Learning and Plasticity (LaP) is a cross-disciplinary meeting that connects psychological and neuroscience research on the mechanisms of learning and brain plasticity. It is organized by the Åbo Akademi University, the University of Turku, and the Turku Brain and Mind Center. A special theme of the 2019 meeting, addressed by the keynote as well as by symposium, will be ”Music: Neurocognition and Therapeutic Applications”. Our LaP 2019 keynote speaker will be Professor Robert Zatorre, PhD (McGill University – Montreal Neurological Institute). Despite of its northern location way above the polar circle, the congress site is easy to reach e.g. by nighttrain or daily flight connections from Helsinki to the nearby airport at Kittilä. The congress program runs from afternoon to evening, enabling one to utilize the excellent possibilities for various winter sports and other outdoor activities during the long days in early April.
