Abstract
                           The eighth African Neuroscience School, which was an advanced school in Neuroendocrinology focused
                           on “Hormones and Brain” was successfully completed with very high level courses and technical
                           workshops. We had one full week program from March 19th to 26th. The school started with an
                           opening lecture on historical overview of the evolution of neuroscience in Middle East, North Africa
                           persan and Andalousia world during the last centuries considered as a “Dark Age” followed by a session
                           which covered the basic topics on anatomy of neuroendocrine system, and a specialized overview on
                           sex related differences in brain including how hormones induced plasticity in synaptic functions and in
                           the development of brain in conjunction with humain behaviour. This first session given to students the
                           basis needed for understanding the followed specialized courses which comprised the three morning
                           next days high level lectures on hormones and rhythmicity, hormones and gene transfert, how
                           hormones controle brain related homeostatic functions, and behavioural correlates of hormonal
                           regulation. During mornings of the second part of the week lectures concerned stress and hormonal
                           regulation, hormones and neurodegenerative/ neuroinflammatory/neuroprotective process, followed by
                           the involvement of hormones in brain dysfuntions/protection. The school ended by a session on animal
                           models comprising African ones and hormonal regulations. All afternoons concerned pratical workshops
                           on gene transfert, microdyalisis associated to high performance liquid chromatography,
                           immunocytochemistry of fos induced by light and hormones, as well as methods of recording the
                           circadian rhythm of locomotor activity. The one-week program also covered social lecture on ICT and
                           knowledge, journal clubs, small group discussion and three interactive didactic sessions on how to
                           prepare power point presentations. At the end of each day students evaluated the courses and
                           workshops. The cultural activities included visits to monuments of Rabat city and the Medina, with two
                           dinners in old Medina houses, enriched by Moroccan music and entertainment. A satellite workshop
                           comprised of eighth lectures and a didactic workshop took place at the Faculty of Sciences, and given
                           to master level students of the faculty. The school officially concluded at a closing ceremony where
                           students received a diploma that was followed by the graduation dinner and Andalucia music.
