We read with great interest the recent article published in your journal by Roze et al. [
] describing the impact of their mime-based role-play initiative in helping medical students to understand neurological seminology and reduce neurophobia. We commend the authors for their efforts to develop ways to support neuroscience education for medical students as we believe this is important for encouraging more students into the brain-related specialties (neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry). Here we wanted to describe a novel conference design we developed to support neuroscience education outside the mainstream curriculum and reduce neurophobia, which has been reported to exist at our institution [
