Abstract: The 6th conference of the Mediterranean Neuroscience Society (MNS), MNS2017, was organized by Prof. Giuseppe Di Giovanni, Co-ordinator of Malta Neuroscience Network (MNN) of the University of Malta and held at the Radisson Blu Hotel in St. Julian’s during the week of Monday 12 June to Thursday 15 June. The MNS2017 is a part of the effort of MNS to bring its contribution to the development of neuroscience in the Mediterranean region facilitating the exchanges with scientists from the rest of the world. The previous MNS Conferences were organized in June 2015 in Pula (Italy), Istanbul (Turky) 2012, Alexandria (Egypt) 2009, Marrakech (Morocco) 2006, Montpellier (France) 1997. These meetings have proved to be highly beneficial, not only for the scientific exchanges between Mediterranean neuroscientists, but also in terms of training opportunities for students and young researchers. More than 450 delegates, including neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, basic and clinical researchers from 41 Countries attended the MNS2017 in Malta. HE Marie Louise Coleiro Preca, President of Malta, opened the Conference (see her speech in this volume) together with Prof. Alfred J. Vella, the Rector of the University of Malta, Prof. Marc Landry, Mediterranean Neuroscience Society (MNS) President (University of Bordeaux, FR) and Prof. Giuseppe Di Giovanni. The meeting gathered scientists, not only from the broad Mediterranean area, offered a rich program, spanning from molecular and cell biology to behaviour under normal and pathological conditions. This included 9 main lectures, over 60 symposia, poster sessions and social events. The meeting has been highly beneficial, not only for the scientific exchanges, but also in terms of training opportunities for students and young researchers.
