Wiring the Brain

he main goal of this meeting is to bring together researchers from diverse fields to explore how brain connectivity is established, how genetic variation can affect these processes, how circuit and network function are affected by defects in neural development and how this can lead to psychiatric and neurological disease.

Topics:

*Activity-dependent Development
*Genetics of Neurodevelopmental Disorders
*Modeling Neurodevelopmental Disorders
