Neural Circuit Basis of Behavior and its Disorders

We are pleased to announce the Cold Spring Harbor Asia conference on Neural Circuit Basis of Behavior and its Disorders which will be held at the Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center in Suzhou, China, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai. The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Monday November 5, and will conclude after lunch on Friday November 9, 2012.

This conference is similar in design to the famous Cold Spring Harbor meetings series, a program now in its 76th year. The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.

Major Topics:
- Development and Genetics of Neural Circuits
- Circuit Mechanisms of Perception, Cognition, and Learning and Memory
- Neuromodulators in Circuit Function and Behavior
- Circuit Dysfunction and Psychiatric Disorders
