The Wiring the Brain meeting will take place July 18th-22nd, 2013 at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, New York. The main goal of this meeting is to bring together researchers from diverse fields to explore how brain connectivity is established, how genetic variation can affect these processes, how circuit and network function are affected by defects in neural development and how this can lead to psychiatric and neurological disease. In addition to a fantastic line-up of invited speakers, the CSHL meeting format also provides a great opportunity for students or postdocs in particular to present their work, in selected talks and poster sessions.
Topics will include:
• Genetically Programmed Development
• Activity-Dependent Development
• Genetics of Neurodevelopmental Disorders
• Modeling Neurodevelopmental Disorders
• Connectivity - From Synapses to Systems
• Circuits - Function & Dysfunction
• Wiring the Human Brain
• Cognitive Development - The Emergence of the Mind
Keynote speakers: Huda Zoghbi, Edmund T. Rolls
