Hey OHSU neuroscientists: Now is the time to register for one of our signature neuroscience events: the NeuroFutures 2016 conference. Hosted by the Allen Institute for Brain Science, in partnership with OHSU, University of Washington, and University of British Columbia, this annual conference explores innovations at the interface of neuroscience and neurotechnology. This year’s NeuroFuture’s theme is “Circuit Structure and Dynamics.” Topics include:
- novel imaging approaches
- non-mammalian model systems
- human and non-human primate circuit function
- computational modeling of circuits
- circuits in degeneration
- circuits in psychiatric disorders
Cost of attendance is $150 for students & postdocs, and $350 for academic/non-profit participants. A free public lecture given by Anne Churchland, Ph.D., Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, entitled “Neural circuits for multisensory decision-making,” will be held on Sunday June 19 starting at 5:30 pm. A panel discussion on “NeuroFutures 2026: How will technology transform our ability to understand the 2026 brain?” will follow the lecture beginning at 6:30 pm, closing with a reception.
