Australian Appetitive Motivation Symposium Newcastle 2022

2 Nov 2022 from 8:30am - 4:30pm

We've waited 3 years since our last event at UNSW in 2019, but AAMS returns November 2 2022, and will be hosted by University of Newcastle at NuSpace in Newcastle’s harbour-side city centre.

The Australian Appetitive Motivation Symposium (AAMS) aims to bring together research and clinical scientists that are interested in the general field of appetitive motivation. This event will highlight the latest research on the neuroscience of addiction, feeding, and decision-making. This year, the symposium will be centred on three major themes: addiction to alcohol and drugs of abuse, ingestive behaviours, and the neural processes underlying decision-making.
