We are keen on advertising the cycle of Bordeaux NeuroCampus conferences and pre-announcing the next 2018 edition, which will be on the topic of Cognitive Aging.
The purpose of the conferences is to present and discuss recent findings in selected hot topics in Neuroscience, bringing together leading international experts and young researchers. The maximum number of participants is 250, including invited speakers. The scientific program is organized jointly by members of Bordeaux Neurocampus and the LabEx Brain.
The Bordeaux Neurocampus Conferences are 3-day meetings that take place in autumn at Bordeaux University, France. About 20 presentations are given by invited speakers, and the schedule encourages lively discussion, in particular during the poster sessions.
The last edition was held from September 27th to 29th and discussed the “Past, Present, and Future of the Brain Research”, gathering the whole Bordeaux Neurocampus community around the most prominent neuroscientists coming from a wide horizon. It was organized in occasion of the inauguration of the latest Bordeaux Neurocampus building, the Centre Broca Nouvelle-Aquitaine, with its impressive architecture.
Previous editions were: “MitoBrain” for “Mitochondrial Functions and Dysfunctions in the Central Nervous System” (2014); “GliSyn” for “Astrocytes and microglia, key partners in synaptic transmission” (2015); and, in 2016, “Probing neuronal circuits during behavior“, gathering world-leader experts in optical microscopy, electrophysiology, optogenetic, and computation for measuring and manipulating synapses, neurons and neuronal circuits at the cutting edge of brain investigation in freely behaving animals.
The pre-announcement for the next 2018 edition (26-28 September 2018, check it in your agendas!) is here (at the moment in French only). It will be about “Aging of cognitive functions: where are we?” and will be organized by Gwenaelle Catheline, Aline Marighetto and Nora Abrous. Stay tuned for more news!
