Neural Mechanisms Online: the first webinar in the Philosophy of Neuroscience

26 January 2018 - 26 June 2018 Open related link

Dear all,

We are very pleased to announce the beginning of Neural Mechanisms Online, i.e. the first international cycle of webinars (=online seminars) on the Philosophy of Neuroscience! The webinars will be held from January to July 2018, every two weeks (calendar). They will deal with hot topics of the philosophy of neuroscience. Several outstanding researchers from all around the world will present their paper, which will be shared via our mailing list. During the session, the author will present their work (30-45 min) and discuss it with the participants (how it works).

To receive material, videos, and details about how to connect with us, please join our mailing list by writing to:

27th European Stroke Conference

11 April 2018 - 13 April 2018 MEGARON Athens International Conference Centre, Vasilissis Sofias and Kokkali Street, 11521 Athens, Greece Open related link

in the tradition of more than 25 years

It is our great pleasure to officially invite you to the 27th European Stroke Conference 2018, which will be held in Athens, Greece from 11 to 13 april 2018.

The ESC is an international expert stroke forum for the presentation and discussion of new research, focusing on interdisciplinary aspects as well as current and future concepts of stroke mechanisms, prevention and treatment. Take this great opportunity to share your latest research results with your colleagues from all over the world, and submit your abstracts online via until 11 December 2017.

Athens is a sprawling city, established among seven historic hills and surrounded by remarkable mountains. Consisting of a large city center, an urban district and metropolitan area, Athens presents a blend of historical and modern features and, therefore, is perfect for our conference.

We would be very pleased if you followed our invitation and attend the ESC 2018 in Athens, the historical capital of Europe!

Adult Neurogenesis 2018

02 May 2018 - 04 May 2018 Dresden, Germany Open related link

Adult neurogenesis is distinct from embryonic forms of neurogenesis in that neuronal development underlies extrinsic regulation, from physiological to pathological. This regulation targets different stages of neuronal development, between cell cycle entry and proliferation of radial glia-like stem cells to the lasting integration of the newly generated neurons. There are obvious feedback loops in that regulation of neurogenesis might alter behavior, which in turn acts back on adult neurogenesis. But how does this all work? How does regulation occur across scales? What constitutes ‘causes’ and ‘mechanisms’ in such complex system? The 2018 Adult neurogenesis meeting uses these key questions as entry point into discussions about how activity and development are linked in adult neurogenesis.

10th International Symposium on Neuroprotection and Neurorepair (ISN&N 2018)

09 October 2018 - 11 October 2018 Open related link

We cordially invite you to join us for the 10th International Symposium on Neuroprotection and Neurorepair (ISN&N), which will take place from October 09 to October 11, 2018.

In continuation of the successful past meetings with up to 400 participants, the scientific focus of the anniversary ISN&N meeting will be on cerebral ischemia and brain hemorrhage, neurotrauma, neurodegeneration as well as related disciplines. Together, we will learn about and discuss the most recent and exciting findings from fundamental and translational neuroscience, as well as diagnostic and therapeutic developments.

The 10th ISN&N will provide a strong platform for contributions from the audience. Minisymposia organized by participants and ample oral presentation from delegates will accompany the key note presentations by outstanding international speakers. The 10th ISN&N will also feature ample time for discussions and scientific exchange.
