Comparative Neuronal Circuits For Adaptive Behaviour

26-28 September 2023

Current research highlights the role of cortical networks in supporting higher order cognitive functions such as decision making or working memory, and their functioning is systematically impaired in various psychiatric conditions including schizophrenia, depression and drug addiction. This global research effort has demonstrated a large degree of functional parcellation within and between cortical networks, which shows high homology from primate (including human) to rodent brains. The "Comparative Neuronal Circuits for adaptive behaviour" conference will gather worldwide experts in Bordeaux Neurocampus to develop ideas and applications beyond the state of the art of current research on cortical circuits by including rodents, bat, monkeys and humans in our conceptual framework. 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.
