Connecting European Neuroscience

The Dynamic Brain series - the Neurobiology of Synapses and their Dysfunction

October 13th, 2013 to October 16th, 2013
Stresa, Italy

About the Event

Chemical synapses mediate signalling between nerve cells in the brain, and their generation, function and plasticity are key determinants of neuronal circuit function and behaviour. The focus of this conference will be on the molecular and cell biological mechanisms of synapse formation and function, and on the pathological aberrations of these processes that lead to neurological and psychiatric disorders.

This conference is part of a series of high-level meetings on the neurosciences in Europe. Co-organised by ESF and The Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS,  the major neuroscience association in Europe), these bi-annual conferences will bring together outstanding researchers in key broadly defined areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.

Important dates: deadline for application 15 July 2013

The Brain Conferences

The Brain Conferences are intimate-scale meetings focused on current topics in neuroscience. Two conferences per year are organised by FENS in collaboration with Lundbeck Foundation, the awarder of The Brain Prize.
