Welcome to SWEBAGS

The Swedish Basal Ganglia Society, SWEBAGS, is an non-profit scientific organization providing a platform for discussions and education opportunities in the area of basal ganglia research.

We aim to increase the visibility of mainly basic and pre-clinical research, and foster multidisciplinary collaborations across biological scales and methodological approaches. All professionals, students and organisations interested in basal ganglia research are welcome to become members.

Together we will leverage the strengths of basal ganglia research in Sweden, join us in our efforts and participate in our activities!
