The programme for the 2011 meeting will run over 4 days, starting on the evening of April 12th with an opening reception and first keynote lecture. All sessions will end on the evening of Friday the 15th. Tuesday the 12th and Saturday the 16th are designated travel days.
Session themes will include:
â€¢Making connections â€“ the genetics and molecular mechanisms of synaptic connectivity and its implication in disease, such as autism, epilepsy and schizophrenia.
â€¢Assembling circuits â€“ network-level and experience-dependent mechanisms of circuit assembly
â€¢From genotype to phenotype â€“ exploring genetic architecture and pathogenic mechanisms of neurodevelopmental disorders, integrating cell biology, anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, neuroimaging and behaviour from model organisms to humans.
â€¢Developmental trajectories â€“ secondary and cascading effects of mutations over development, homeostasis, epigenetics, interplay with maturational processes
â€¢Connectivity - exploring the structural and functional attributes of large-scale brain networks, their development and new methods to visualise them.
â€¢From brain to mind â€“ understanding the structure and function of neuronal microcircuits and larger networks and how they mediate behaviour, perception and cognition.
