Observing research trends in modern neurosciencesFunded under: FP4-BIOMED 2, FP4-BIOTECH 2, FP4-FAIR
In 1993-1994 Professor Ruberti, following upon the recommendations of his science advisors, promoted a number of meetings on neurosciences as a contribution to the preparation of future research programmes. This led to the inclusion of Neurosciences in the fourth (1994-1998) Framework Programme under three specific programmes. Under the BIOTECHNOLOGY programme priority will be given to improving the understanding at the cellular and molecular level of the complex aspect of cell communication within the nervous system during development and in the adult. Research supported under the BIOMEDICAL AND HEALTH programme will contribute to the understanding of mechanisms underlying the development of specific mental and neurological diseases. The programme on INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY will include the areas of artificial intelligence and neurocomputing. Several advanced research meetings in the neurosciences were held under the auspices of the European Commission. This report outlines the scientific scope of the above activities, summarizes the contributions to a number of the meetings, and presents some perspectives based on an overall analysis.
