Brain Mind Institute Symposium

Connectivity and Plasticity of Neural Circuits

12th- 13th December 2016
EPFL, Switzerland

Neural circuits of synaptically connected neurons drive brain function and behavior. Technological and conceptual advances are now providing exciting new perspectives linking synaptic connectivity and plasticity to behavior, learning and memory. In this meeting, we will discuss recent progress in our understanding of neural circuits focusing on connectomics, optogenetics, synaptic plasticity and learning.
