EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Probing Neural Dynamics with Behavioural GeneticsApr 10 - 13 , 2019EMBL Heidelberg, Germany
One of the ultimate challenges in neuroscience is to link the dynamics of brain activity to behaviour. Cutting-edge experimental methodologies such as calcium imaging, multi-electrode recordings and optogenetics in freely-behaving animals of different genetic backgrounds have generated a wealth of rich data sets. In order to gain a better understanding, such studies need to be analysed through bioinformatics, computational analysis and theory.
This meeting seeks to bring together experts on how the brain integrates information about sensory inputs and internal state into behavioural responses. This topic will be illustrated by studies in different model organisms and will range from sensory-motor to cognitive behaviour. It will foster interdisciplinary discussions between molecular, physiological, behavioural and computational neuroscientists.

Understanding and Targeting Alzheimer's DiseaseMay 5 - 8 , 2019Rungstedgaard, Denmark
Dementia poses one of the largest health and economic problems in the world with over 50 million people worldwide living with dementia, no disease modifying treatments available, and numbers set to dramatically increase as our population ages. Neuroscience research has the real potential to change this bleak future and develop effective ways to prevent or treat the diseases that cause dementia. Three of our current grand challenges towards this goal are to understand why certain brain regions are susceptible to the accumulation of pathology and neurodegeneration early in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, how pathologies then spread from these vulnerable regions to damage the rest of the brain, and finally how risk factors like ApoE modulate disease progression.
In this meeting, we will address the best way to move forward as a field in addressing these knowledge gaps with an emphasis on the emerging data in the field implicating non-neuronal contributors to disease risk and regional vulnerability. The latest clinical trials and the requirement of biomarkers for early risk assessment will be discussed on the background of our understanding of disease mechanisms. The meeting will end with a podiums discussion on the pros and cons of the amyloid cascade hypothesis.

Dynamics of the Brain: Temporal Aspects of ComputationJun 9 - 12 , 2019Rungstedgaard, Denmark
The brain is an extraordinarily complex dynamical system whose critical operations run over timescales ranging from the sub-millisecond (e.g., auditory perception), to the circadian (e.g., sleep and homeostatic phenomena), to weeks and years (e.g., learning and memory). Brain circuits express collective properties that can be detected macroscopically, such as traveling waves or oscillations, but recent developments also reveal, through large scale recordings of neuron populations, smaller-scale spatiotemporal phenomena such as transient dynamics (spatio-temporal multi-neuronal activation patterns in response to odours, in preparation for action, in “replay" during sleep). Those dynamics suggest strong constraints on the orchestration of activity in brain circuits. This conference will explore experimental and theoretical approaches to understand the underpinnings of such dynamics and their relevance for computation in the brain.
