Neuronal Circuits

A comprehensive description of neuronal circuitry, an old dream of neuroscientists, is about to become a reality with recent technological advances. As these advances have been made in different model organisms and systems, there is a need for a forum where neuroscientists studying various neuronal circuits could exchange ideas. This CSHL meeting will allow for neuroscientists working on neuronal circuits in a wide range of model organisms, from invertebrates to mammals, to come together and discuss their research. Contributions from research centered on neuronal circuits involving anatomical, physiological, theoretical and behavioral approaches will be encouraged.

Tentative topics:
-Vision
-Neuromodulation
-Technology
-Dendrites & Plasticity
-Behavior
-Neocortex
