Structure and Function of Neural Circuits

  June 02, 2010  
EMBL- European Molecular Biology Laboratory , Germany, Heidelberg EMBL Advanced Training Centre
5-8 September 2010

Understanding the complexity and functional composition of cellular and synaptic networks in the nervous system is a major challenge in neurobiology. Genes and molecules impact directly the assembly, function, and plasticity of specific neural circuits, and recent studies in different model systems start to elucidate the functionality of neuronal connectomes as an higher organisational entity required for the generation of complex behaviours.

The goal of this Symposium is to highlight recent work on the anatomical and functional analysis of behaviourally-relevant neural circuits in genetically tractable model systems, and to promote the exchange of ideas and methods in this exciting field of research.
