The 49th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (Neuroscience 2019)

(Chicago, IL, U.S.A.)



On October 18-25, 2019, Dr. Suen Ka ChunMs. Cheung Hiu Man and five Neuroscience Club students (5J Cheng Hei Long, 5M Hsu Tsun Ho, 5V Liu Kwan Chak Jake, 6J Chan Sau Tsun and 6J Cheung Yan Yuet) attended the 49th Annual Meeting of Society for Neuroscience (SfN 2019) and presented their research paper titled “The effects of different combinations of plant extracts and traditional Chinese medicine on hydrogen peroxide- and thapsigargin-induced neurotoxicity”. This was a collaborative project with the research group of Dr. Raymond C.C. Chang, Associate Professor, School of Biomedical Science, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong (HKU), Hong Kong, China.


In the same conference, Dr. Suen Ka Chun and Ms. Cheung Hiu Man presented their educational research paper titled “Development of a novel science curriculum about neural stem cells for high-school students in Hong Kong”.

Our young neuroscientists were ready to present their research findings.

Hsu Tsun Ho, Chairman of Neuroscience Club was talking about the methodology of several experiments.

Dr. Raymond C. C. Chang raised some challenging questions to our students.

Some other scientists were interested in the research findings done by our students.

At 5:15pm, the team attended another important lecture. Its topic was “The Cell Biology of the Synapse and Behavior” given by Prof. Daniel A. Colon-Ramos. There may be over 15,000 neuroscientists attending this Presidential Lecture.

Dr. Chang, his Ph.D. students and our team had a very nice dinner after the Presidential Lecture.

Oct 22, 2019

Our students visited Field Museum in Chicago. In this museum, the students can study specimens of plants and animals and the history of humans and ancient Egypt.
