About the symposium

The symposium will showcase recent research on the regulation of neuronal functions in health and in neurological and degenerative disorders. The focus will be on biological processes that enable and sustain neuronal functions at the cell- and circuitry level with strong mechanistic components and application of state-of-the-art technologies. Invited speakers are leaders in the field, from around the world.

Attendees are welcome to present posters, and a few short (3 min) talks will be selected based on submitted abstracts to highlight the accompanying posters. The program will allow ample opportunity throughout the day for networking.
