Neuroscience 2016 Virtual Conference

WRITTEN BY: Jennifer Ellis

LabRoots is excited to present the 4th Annual world-renowned Neuroscience virtual conference to be broadcasted live March 16-17, 2016. Neuroscience 2016 (free to attend) aims to help advance knowledge of the brain and nervous system by bringing together research scientists, principal investigators, lab directors, clinicians and medical professionals from around the world to discuss and learn about the latest research and technologies in the field.

Neuroscience 2016 will offer the following topics:

Neural Circuitry: New ontogenetic and anatomical methods for defining neural circuits, molecular biology of neural circuits in health and disease, and the need to reconsider clinical trial design for novel drug discovery

Neurodegenerative Disorders: Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, spino-cerebellar ataxia, common pathological aspects of neurodegenerative disorders, effects of neurodegeneration on human motor behavior, and heritable neurodegenerative disorders

Psychiatric disease: Schizophrenia, developmental risk factors for psychosis, the future of psychopharmacology, and perinatal and childhood risk factors in psychiatric diseases.

Neuron Biology: Neurogenesis, stem cells, reprogramming to treat psychiatric and neurological diseases, brain-gut interactions - a new hot topic, and critical phase of neuronal plasticity.
