That the Parliament welcomes the event, Neuroscience Matters; understands that this event will be held by The British Neuroscience Association to highlight the contribution that neuroscience researchers across Scotland are making through world-leading research; understands that neurological disorders are one of the leading causes of disability globally and that around one in three people are estimated to be affected by mental illness in any one year in Scotland, and believes that neuroscience research and those working within neuroscience in Scotland, play a critical role in tackling some of the key health challenges of the future.
