About the Event
This meeting will bring together researchers and clinicians whose work focuses on the cerebellum. The programme includes a group of UK and international speakers who will discuss cutting edge advances and new thinking on cerebellar anatomy, molecular and cell biology, physiology, the cerebellar basis of behaviour, and clinical disorders of cerebellar origin.
Topics in fundamental neuroscience will include brain anatomy, genetics, development, motor control, plasticity mechanisms, learning and cognition. Clinical topics in psychiatry and neurology will include cerebellar links with autism, cerebellar ataxias, and cerebellar involvement in neurodegenerative disorders. They will span multiple levels of analysis, from molecular and cellular levels through to systems, behaviour and cognition. Speakers will discuss work based on a range of methodological approaches (including molecular methods, single cell recordings, human brain imaging, and animal models of cerebellar disease).
