Join some of the brightest minds in research, engineering, industry and clinical domains at NeuroFutures 2017. This year’s conference will focus on neuronal circuits, with topics including novel imaging approaches, brain clearing and expansion techniques, human and non-human primate circuit function, genetically engineered probes for circuit function, circuits in degeneration, and circuits in psychiatric disorders.
July 9-11, 2017
University of British Columbia
Gary Marcus, Ph.D., director, NYU Center for Language and Music, and professor of psychology, New York University, will present a public lecture, “What artificial intelligence can learn from the brain, and vice versa.” Keynote addresses will be given by Loren Looger, Ph.D., group leader, Janelia Research Campus, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and Brian MacVicar, Ph.D., co-director, Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health, University of British Columbia. Looger will present “Genetically engineered indicators of neuronal activity.” MacVicar will present “Imaging metabolism using fluorescence lifetime.”
NeuroFutures 2017 is sponsored by the University of British Columbia, OHSU, Leica Microsystems, the Allen Institute for Brain Science, the University of Washington, and the University of British Columbia. Following the conference, there will be a brain clearing and expansion workshop on July 12.
