Bordeaux Neurocampus Conference - NeuroCompareComparative Neuronal Circuits For Adaptive Behaviour

Bordeaux Neurocampus Conference - NeuroCompare

26-28 September 2023

Registration from April 1st, 2023

Current research highlights the role of cortical networks in supporting higher order cognitive functions (e. g. decision making, working memory) and its functioning is systematically impaired in various psychiatric conditions (schizophrenia, depression, drug addiction). This global research effort has demonstrated a very high degree of functional parcellation within and between cortical networks. Networks with high homology have been identified from primate (including human) to rodent brains. The "Comparative Neuronal Circuits for adaptive behaviour" conference will gather worldwide experts together in Bordeaux Neurocampus to develop research and applications beyond the state of the art from cortical circuits research in rodents, to bat, to monkeys and humans. We will discuss two complementary dimensions: (1) the anatomy and connectivity of cortical circuits, and (2) the function of those circuits in adaptive behaviour.

About Bordeaux Neurocampus international conferences

The Bordeaux Neurocampus Conferences are a series of 3-day neuroscience meetings that take place every year in autumn at Bordeaux University, France, since 2014

The purpose of the conferences is to present and discuss recent findings in a topic field in Neuroscience, bringing together leading international experts and young researchers. The maximum number of participants is 160, including invited speakers.

About 20 presentations are given by invited speakers, and the schedule encourages lively discussion, in particular during the poster sessions.
