Neurons, synapses & circuits - from function to disease

Neurons, synapses & circuits - from function to disease

16 August 2018 9:00am18 August 2018 4:30pm
Understanding how neuronal activity and synaptic function produce and are shaped by behaviour is a fundamental goal of neuroscience. Similarly, improved treatments for mental and neurological disorders will rely on gaining a better appreciation for how the brain coordinates activity across synaptic, circuit and system scales. This short conference brings together academic, industry and clinical leaders to discuss the latest advances in these areas.
