Neuroscience 2016 included 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.
