However, the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic changed everything. The organisers of the British Neuroscience Association (BNA) decided early on to convert the conference of European neuroscience societies into a virtual event. Instead of meeting at a conference venue, participants came together on an animated virtual conference platform with elaborately designed graphics.
