The Brain Conferences - The Brain in Focus: New Approaches to Imaging Neurons and Neural Circuits

Recent advances in optical microscopy have transformed neuroscience, providing an unprecedented view of the structure and function of neural systems. During this conference world’s leading researchers will explore current developments in microscopy and related biophysical and computational methods for measuring and controlling the nervous system, from molecules to entire neural circuits.

17 April 2016 - 20 April 2016

The Brain Conferences establish a series of high-level meetings on neuroscience in Europe. Organised by FENS in collaboration with The Brain Prize, these bi-annual conferences bring together outstanding researchers in key broadly defined areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.

Valentina Emiliani (Neurophotonics Laboratory, CNRS-Paris Descartes University, France)
