Connectomics: from Micro-to Meso-and Macro-Scales

Cajal School 2017 Bordeaux Neurocampus

Du 2 octobre 2017 au 21 octobre 2017

The CAJAL course in Connectomics is an intensive three-week course
that guides participants through the theory and practice of state-of the art methods to address pertinent questions in the field of structural/functional connectomics from mice to man. This goal will be achieved through a unique balance of lectures from world-wide experts in their respective fields to experimental demonstrations and hands-on laboratory work in small groups. During the course each participant will become familiar with a range of approaches, ranging from connectivity studies in the brain slice and in vivo in the behaving brain using electrophysiological, calcium imaging, optogenetic, viral trans-synaptic tracing, whole brain clearing and neuroimaging approaches with magnetic resonance imaging (functional and structural imaging) in both mice and human subjects (performed on the participants) and postmortem tissue.

 Applications are open
