SfN's 49th annual meeting is the premier venue for neuroscientists to present emerging science, learn from experts, forge collaborations with peers, explore new tools and technologies, and advance careers.
Neuroscience 2019 will take place October 19-23 in Chicago. Join 30,000 colleagues from more than 70 countries at the world’s largest marketplace of ideas and tools for global neuroscience. Register for this event here.
Molecular approaches to understand neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases
The Translational Neuroscience Autumn School 2019 focuses on novel molecular approaches helping to understand neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases and it emphasizes the necessity of timely translation of basic research to clinical practice. Senior experts and young investigators from different fields of neuroscience, e.g. neuroinflammation, signalling in cognition, social neurobiology, and neurobiology of mental disorders, will discuss their research topics with the audience. Master and graduate students are invited to expand their knowledge, but also to be motivated to continue their education diligently and continuously and to address the challenges of neuroscience.
Rapid advances in live imaging of targeted cellular morphologies and functions underpin the emerging revolution in our understanding of synapses, circuits, and behaviour. The Cajal Advanced Imaging Techniques course will be focused on how to combine genetically encoded fluorescence labelling with behavioural designs, micro-circuit monitoring, or single-molecule tracking, how to avoid pitfalls of having false-positive observations and inherent noise, and how to best analyse your multi-dimensional data. An intense program of lectures and seminars will be combined with supervised, hands-on practical training modules and group assignments.
Champalimaud Centre For The Unknown, Lisbon, Portugal
The Course in Computational Neuroscience is a practical 3-week course (10-28August-1 2020) at the Champalimaud Centre, Lisbon, Portugal that teaches the central ideas, methods, and practices of modern Computational Neuroscience through a combination of lectures and hands-on project work.
This Behaviour of Neural Systems 3-week course (19 July - 8 August 2020) at the Champalimaud Centre, Lisbon, Portugal is a practical “hands-on” introduction to advanced methods in behavioural tracking and analysis and will cover sufficient background such that all participants will be able to establish these techniques in their home laboratories. Modern technology (e.g. video tracking, virtual reality, automation, optogenetics, etc.) and quantitative analysis methods (unsupervised and supervised ethograms, machine learning, mathematical modelling, etc.) will be taught to tackle questions about behaviour and brain function.
Applications open in January 2020.
