About the course

In partnership with the Bordeaux Imaging Center

Venue:   Bordeaux School of Neuroscience

Rapid advances in live imaging of targeted cellular morphologies and functions underpin the emerging revolution in our understanding of synapses, circuits, and behaviour. This Cajal course will assemble, as international faculty, leading experts in developing and exploiting cutting-edge imaging techniques that have been propelling such advances. How to combine genetically encoded fluorescence labelling with behavioural designs, micro-circuit monitoring, or single-molecule tracking, how to avoid pitfalls of having false-positive observations and inherent noise, how to best analyse your multi-dimensional data will be, among others, the recurrent subjects of the course. An intense programme of lectures and seminars will be combined with supervised, hands-on practical training modules and group assignments using experimental setups and tools provided by the world-leading research environment of the Bordeaux School of Neuroscience.

Course directors:

• Director: Dmitri Rusakov (UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, UK)
• Co-director: Tatiana Korotkova (Neuronal circuits and behaviour, MPI for Metabolism Research, Germany)
• Local director: Grégory Giannone (CNRS, IINS – UMR 5297, University of Bordeaux, France)
