BrainConf 2023: NeuroCompare

The next Bordeaux Neurocampus international conference, NeuroCompare (Comparative Neuronal Circuits For Adaptive Behaviour), will take place from Tuesday 26th to Thursday 28th September, 2023. Mind the dates, they changed!

Venue: Centre Broca Nouvelle-Aquitaine.

Registration from April 3rd on http://brainconf.u-bordeaux.fr


Current research highlights the role of cortical networks in supporting higher order cognitive functions (e. g. decision making, working memory) and its functioning is systematically impaired in various psychiatric conditions (schizophrenia, depression, drug addiction). This global research effort has demonstrated a very high degree of functional parcellation within and between cortical networks. Networks with high homology have been identified from primate (including human) to rodent brains. The « Comparative Neuronal Circuits for adaptive behaviour » conference will gather worldwide experts together in Bordeaux Neurocampus to develop research and applications beyond the state of the art from cortical circuits research in rodents, to bat, to monkeys and humans. We will discuss two complementary dimensions: (1) the anatomy and connectivity of cortical circuits, and (2) the function of those circuits in adaptive behaviour.
