Impact of Early Life Deprivation on Cognition: Implications for the Evolutionary Origins of the Human MindOct 11 - 11 , 2019
Join the live webcast! "Impact of Early Life Deprivation on Cognition: Implications for the Evolutionary Origins of the Human Mind” is the topic of a free public symposium hosted by the UCSD/Salk Center for Academic Research & Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA) and UCSD/Kavli Institute for Brain & Mind (KIBM) on Friday, October 11th (1:00-5:30 pm Pacific), co-chaired by Paula Tallal (Salk Institute) and Faraneh Vargha-Khadem (UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health).
Unlike the case with most other animals, much of human brain development and maturation occur after birth, a process that continues into early adulthood. This unusual pattern allows for greater influences of environment and culture on the emergence of the adult mind. Ethical considerations disallow most experiments that might address the interactive contributions of nature and nurture in this process, which likely played a key role in the origins of the human species and in the evolution of distinct features of our minds. For similar reasons the relative importance of various factors cannot be easily studied, nor teased apart.
This symposium will address the matter to the extent possible based on available evidence, ranging from experiments by ancient monarchs and lessons from “feral” children of various kinds, to the follow-up of Romanian orphans, etc. while addressing comparative and neurobiological issues.

Vestibular Contributions to Health and DiseaseOct 25 - 26 , 2019New York, NY
The early development of the vestibular apparatus in fish, frogs, and other primordial vertebrates has persisted largely unchanged from fish to man. This system controls spatial orientation,perception of gravity and the spatial vertical, and locomotion in three-dimensional space. It also controls breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure, as well as other aspects of autonomic function.Because the control of these functions takes place largely out of consciousness, their actions can be frightening to those who experience their dysfunction and cause substantial difficulty to physicians trying to calm or modulate their activity. Although the basic structure of the semicircular canals and otolith organs is known, it is still not entirely clear how and where the perception is controlled in the brain stem, the cerebellum and the cerebral cortex.
This two-day CME live activity is divided into four parts each devoted to an important component of vestibular, vestibular autonomic, and vestibulo-cerebellar function. Frontiers, the open-access publisher based in Lausanne, Switzerland, has provided a generous grant to support this meeting as part of its annual Spotlight Conference Series.
An international faculty of experts will share new and established data from experimental vestibular studies, including up-to-date appraisal of clinical and experimental studies of the Mal de Debarquement Syndrome, and studies of the neural basis for positional nystagmus and balance.The program will include the annual Mount Sinai Yahr Lecture which will be delivered by Charles Della Santina, MD, PhD, on the development of electrical activation of semicircular canal nerves to restore three-dimensional spatial orientation.
Vestibular Contributions to Health and DiseaseOct 25 - 26 , 2019Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
The interrelated functions of several systems that evolved hundreds of millions of years ago — the vestibular, cerebellar, sympathetic, and cardiovascular systems — have important clinical implications in modern neurology and neuro-otology. Operating largely out of consciousness, the vestibular system responds to head and body movement in any direction, stabilizes the head and body with regard to gravity in three-dimensional space, and maintains vital bodily functions through an interaction of vestibular-related components of the brainstem and cerebellum with the cardiovascular and sympathetic systems. This symposium presents new basic data and clinical findings that have arisen over the first years of the 21st Century with regard to these systems and includes these broad topics:
- Fundamental vestibular, brainstem, and cerebellar science
- New approaches to vestibular diagnosis, pathology, and treatment
- Investigations of the vestibular impact on the cardiovascular and sympathetic systems
Through didactic lecture, case presentations, and interactive discussions with expert clinicians and researchers, attendees will learn about the function of the otolith organs; the diagnostic and clinical changes in the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR); the vestibular input to sympathetic functions, i.e., the vestibulo-sympathetic reflex (VSR); and a hypothesis that considers the neural basis for the Mal de Debarquement syndrome.

EMBL Conference: Advances in Stem Cells and Regenerative MedicineMar 8 - 11 , 2020Heidelberg, Germany
Regenerative medicine is based on the ability of stem cells to repair tissue damage. The regenerative capacity of endogenous stem cells decreases with age, is impaired in degenerative diseases, and deregulated in cancer. Our ability to maintain and restore normal tissue function therefore requires that we understand not only the identity, properties and function of normal stem cells, but also the processes that alter their function during ageing, and in both malignant and degenerative disease. The aim of this conference is to provide a comprehensive overview of these aspects of stem cell biology. The cellular and molecular properties of normal tissue stem cells will be discussed, as will the properties of the niches that maintain them. We will address alterations to stem cell function during ageing and malignant transformation, and how stem cells can be used for regenerative purposes and for disease treatment.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Inter-Organ Communication in Physiology and DiseaseMar 15 - 18 , 2020Heidelberg, Germany
One of the major outcomes of research using model organisms is that we are far from knowing all the functions fulfilled by various organs in vertebrates or invertebrates. Deleting one gene at a time in a single cell type is at the origin of unprecedented progress in our understanding of how homeostasis is maintained at the level of an entire organism. As a result, modern physiology has slowly moved from a purely molecular discipline back to being a truly holistic one. This molecular, genetic and yet holistic approach to physiology has had an effect on energy metabolism, the control of blood pressure, the plasticity of cognitive and immune functions, as well as the multiple ways in which organs such as fat, bone or gut can exert control over other organs such as the brain. Symbiotic interactions with resident microbes have added a further dimension to the study of host physiology.
This symposium aims to provide a high visibility platform to scientists who use modern molecular genetic tools to discover inter-organ communications, and therefore to illustrate how much our molecular and genetic understanding of whole-organism physiology has progressed in the last 20 years. Bringing together scientists interested in various aspects of a single discipline, whole-organism physiology, will foster interactions between researchers working in different fields in order to speed up the discovery of novel physiologies. This meeting will also directly address a central question: How can recent developments in whole-organism physiology pave the way to novel and adapted therapies for multiple degenerative diseases? Lastly, it will showcase an approach to modern biology that starts from a question paused at the level of the entire organism and is answered through genetic means at the molecular level.

3rd International Neuroscience ConferenceApr 5 - 6 , 2020Marseille, France
We are pleased to inform you that our 3rd International Neuroscience conference will be held in Marseille on April 5 and 6, 2020.
This year, the subject will be inhibition. This is a major issue since synaptic or intrinsic inhibition defects are at the root of neurological diseases such as epilepsy but also psychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia. In addition, inhibitory circuits orchestrate neural activity under physiological conditions and are therefore at the origin of most major brain functions.
A panel of 18 local, national (Paris, Saclay) and international (USA, UK, Switzerland, Germany) experts in the field of synaptic and intrinsic inhibition was selected to present their latest results.
Registration is now open, until March 27, 2020. Participants are invited to submit a poster.

The Cytoskeletal Road to Neuronal FunctionApr 19 - 22 , 2020West Sussex, United Kingdom
The cytoskeleton is a key feature of every living cell. In eukaryotes, microtubule and actin filaments are ubiquitous cytoskeletal elements which work together with molecular motors and a plethora of other proteins to perform many different functions. Neurons are particularly dependent on their cytoskeleton which plays key roles spanning from neuronal differentiation and migration, through axonal trafficking and synapse formation, to neurodegeneration and cell death.
This Workshop brings together scientists from a wide spectrum of disciplines that do not commonly have the chance to interact: neurobiologists with backgrounds in cellular, developmental systems and behavioural neurobiology, as well as structural biologists and biochemists from the cytoskeleton field. Our aim is to delineate how basic molecular and structural knowledge from the cytoskeleton field can help our understanding of neuronal processes that take place on a larger scale. We will discuss topics such as neuronal development and connectivity, neuronal transmission, and also neurodegeneration. Examples of the questions we will discuss are: Why do mutations in cytoskeletal components result in specific subsets of neurons dying? How do defects in the cytoskeleton contribute to erroneous neuronal migration and neurodevelopment and how common are these in human populations? How is the cytoskeleton involved in memory generation, processing and storage?Combining our increased understanding of structural and biochemical aspects of microtubules, actin filaments and motors, with refined tools to study neuronal functions in organisms makes this an especially exciting time to bring people together. Our goal is to discuss novel ideas and form new, fruitful collaborations in a small and focussed setting. We anticipate that our workshop will catalyse a strong interdisciplinary approach to explaining some of the key molecular processes involved in the formation of a brain, its function and how it goes wrong in diseases from dementias to psychiatric disorders.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: The Neurovascular InterfaceSep 14 - 17 , 2020Heidelberg, Germany
Neurovascular biology is a young, emerging field that aims to unravel the molecular communication between the nervous system and the vasculature. Both the nervous system and the vascular system share striking conceptual similarities in the assembly of cellular networks through guided growth and branching processes. Vascular and neural cells work together to form a number of functional tissue compartments. Endothelial cells, certain mural support cells (i.e., pericytes), astrocytes and neurons assemble the neurovascular unit, which establishes the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers. In fact, many of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases and cognitive decline involve disruption of the neurovascular unit or compromised vascular function in the nervous system. It has become increasingly clear that the endothelium and mural support cells function go beyond nutrient supply and are instructive and structurally required to allow nervous system function.
In this symposium, we bring together researchers from vascular biology and neurobiology to foster interdisciplinary exchange and new emerging concepts on how vascular and nervous systems crosstalk to maintain organ homeostasis and function

EMBO Workshop: Neuroepigenetics: From Cells to Behaviour and DiseaseOct 28 - 31 , 2020Heidelberg, Germany
Neuroepigenetics is a young field that is attracting a lot of attention. Genome-wide association studies and mouse models continue to discover new connections between chromatin regulators and neurodevelopmental disorders and epigenetic pathways have been implicated in various physiological and pathological aspects of brain function, such as memory formation and recovery, addiction and neurodegeneration.
This conference aims to provide a gathering opportunity for researchers of all levels who are interested in how gene regulation participates in the development and function of the brain, with particular attention to the chromatin-based regulation of gene expression. The key objective is to bring together, in the same meeting, two groups of scientists: neuroscientists with interest in gene regulation and molecular biologists with strong expertise in the mechanisms of transcription and epigenetics that want to apply their knowledge to understanding how the brain works. We believe the two groups can learn a lot from each other and we hope this conference can function as a catalyst for scientific exchange and collaboration between them.
