Neural circuits are central to our understanding of how the brain works. Promoting basic research into the form and function of neural circuits and the translation of this research into neurotechnologies for both studying the brain and for treating different diseases and injuries is the theme of our 2015 Bridging Biomedical Worlds conference. This conference, entitled From Neural Circuitry to Neurotechnology, will be held in Tokyo, Japan, May 11-12, 2015, and is jointly organized by Fondation IPSEN, AAAS/Science and AAAS/Science Translational Medicine, and the RIKEN Brain Science Institute. The meeting will cover a broad range of topics including memory formation, decision making, sensory systems, circuits that determine complex behavior, and new technologies that exploit neural circuitry, as well as the translation of this knowledge into clinical applications.
