IBRO-Kemali School on Brain Connectivity and Connectomics
September 14 - 22, 2017
Organizers: Prof. Marina Bentivoglio (University of Verona, Italy) and Prof. Marc Landry (University of Bordeaux, France)
Co-Organizer: Prof. Nouria Lakhdar-Ghazal (University Mohamed V, Rabat, Morocco)
Aims and Scope of the School:
This IBRO-Kemali School on Brain Connectivity and Connectomics aims at providing integrated theoretical perspectives and practical training in the study of neuronal connections and connectomics, progressing from the investigations of neuronal pathways to computational approaches, and from laboratory animals to Man.
Favoring networking and bridges among students from all sides of the Mediterranean basin, the School will provide high quality lectures and hands-on training on pathways and networks in the brain at the synaptic microscale; anatomical connectivity at the mesoscale with conventional techniques (tract tracing) and their novel developments, together with their functional implications (e.g. pain processing, food intake regulation, cognitive functions) in rodents and non-human primates; structural, functional, and "effective" connectomics (neuroimaging, transcranial magnetic stimulation, electroencephalography) at the macroscale in the human brain.
Who should apply to this School?
Early stage career investigators (post-doctoral fellows, Ph.D. students) from all Mediterranean countries
What costs will be covered for selected applicants?
Travel expenses, hotel accommodation, meals
Application deadline: July 31, 2017 (11:59 p.m. CET)
