Connecting European Neuroscience

The Dynamic Brain series – The Neurobiology of Action

Stresa, Italy

Excellence, Action, Control Of Movement

About the Event

All of our actions depend on networks in the nervous system. Some of these emerge through the activity of circuits specialised for behaviours conserved across the animal kingdom, while other organising patterns emerge through forms of learning and extend to cognitive behaviour. This conference will explore this range of neural control and pose critical questions about levels and mechanisms and principles of dynamic control.

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 21 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.
