Tenth International Congress of Neuroethology

The International Congress of Neuroethology is a biennial meeting sponsored by the International Society for Neuroethology (ISN) that brings together researchers from all over the world who are interested in the neural basis of behavior. This meeting is special because of the diversity of topics and species represented. Research presented includes the neural bases for animals sensing and navigating through their environments, the neural basis for complex behavior such as social behavior, and the evolution of nervous systems. Animal subjects include a wide variety of taxa including mammals and other vertebrates and several invertebrate phyla. Each day, there are plenary talks, symposia organized by members of the ISN, and poster sessions open to all registrants. The symposia include a session of Young Investigators Awardees and participant symposia selected from the poster abstracts. This year, there will be a special symposium highlighting the roots and future of neuroethology.
