SfNサテライトシンポジウム「Wiring and Functional Principles of Neural Circuits」@UCSD


北米神経科学会直後にUCSDにてサテライトシンポジウムを開催します。本シンポジウムでは新進気鋭の若手PIを集め、神経科学における新しい方向性を議論する会にしたいと考えています。特に若手のPIや独立をめざしている博士研究員の参加を歓迎しますが、それ以外の方も歓迎です。Short talk(選抜)およびポスター発表の機会を設けます。参加費は無料。JSTのサポートにより、一部参加者の滞在費を支給します。ウェブサイト(https://neuronet.riem.nagoya-u.ac.jp/neuralcircuit/)をご覧の上、メールにてお申し込みください。

Wiring and Functional Principles of Neural Circuits
November 17-18, 2016

Understanding behavior-related neuronal activity and how the underlying circuit functions and assembles is a central mission in contemporary neuroscience. In this two-day symposium, important topics in this field will be discussed by rising stars of the new generation who are investigating neural circuits with state-of-the-art techniques. A unique scope of this meeting is to facilitate interactions among young neuroscientists. For this purpose, we have intentionally invited relatively young but prominent PIs in this field. This symposium will be a satellite event of the Society for Neuroscience meeting, and open to any neuroscientists. A limited number of travel fellowships are also available. Young PIs and senior post-docs are particularly welcome to attend. Several slots for short talks will be selected from submitted abstracts.

David Kleinfeld, University of California, San Diego, USA
