From maps to circuits: Models and mechanisms for generating neural connections: 28/29 July 2014, Edinburgh UK

last modified Jun 24, 2014 05:49 PM

Organisers: Stephen Eglen, Matthias Hennig, Andrew Huberman, David Sterratt, Ian Thompson, David Willshaw

Aim of the meeting:
Understanding the development of the nervous system is a key challenge that has been approached by both experimental and theoretical
neuroscientists. In recent years there has been a gradual move towards the two groups working more with each other. The idea of this workshop
is to bring key people together who have shown an interest at combining theoretical and experimental techniques to discuss current
problems in neuronal development, and plan future collaborative efforts.

Time at the end of each day of the workshop will be devoted to a group discussion about questions that have been raised during the day to identify possible research directions and people willing to pursue them.

Speakers: Tom Clandinin (Stanford), Michael Crair (Yale), Irina Erchova (Cardiff), David Feldheim (UC Santa Cruz), Geoffrey Goodhill (U Queensland), Robert Hindges (Kings College London), Sonja Hofer (Basel), Hitoshi Sakano (U Tokyo), David Wilkinson (NIMR, London), David Willshaw (Edinburgh), Fred Wolf (Gottingen).

This meeting is supported by Cambridge University Press, Company of Biologists, Gatsby Charitable Foundation, Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation, Wellcome Trust.
