In our second year, the focus will be broadly on neurodegenerative disease, with emphasis on molecular mechanisms and pathology, disruptions in circuitry and synapses (including sleep) and plausible therapeutic interventions.
2nd Online Cognitive and Affective Neurophysiology Summer School: Acquisition, Processing and Analysis of EEG SignalJul 19 - 23 , 2021Online
This summer school is focused on the application of Electroencephalography (EEG) and Event Related Potential (ERP) techniques to the study of cognitive and affective processes. The course is designed as an introduction to these techniques, and does not require prior knowledge or experience with EEG/ERP. However, participants with some degree of experience also considered the course helpful. Basic knowledge of statistics is expected (general understanding of statistical tests, correlation, ANOVA, regression). This year's program will include:
- Introduction to the EEG/ERP techniques in Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience
- Collecting EEG data and ERP Research Design
- Electrophysiological signal processing
- Statistical analysis of ERP data
- Breakout meetings on specific topics
Behavioral Experimentation in an Online WorldAug 10 - 13 , 2021Virtual
Behavioral Science research heavily relies on human subjects for data collection. During the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers in the field have found it extremely hard to collect data. This has encouraged many researchers to switch to online experimentation. However, online modes pose multiple challenges, including availably of relevant software, recruiting participants, and lack of controlled settings.
Carolyn McGettigan Aditya Singh from will talk about their experiences in conducting behavioral research online. McGettigan will talk about recruitment platforms and tips for conducting studies online, while Singh will focus on introducing attendees to open-source software for conducting experiments and collecting data.
This seminar will:
- Introduce audiences to paid/open-source software available for conducting online behavioral research.
- Offer an introduction to experimental designs suitable for online setups.
- Inform participants about how to combat common issues while setting up their systems.

ESI Systems Neuroscience Conference (ESI SyNC)Aug 30 - Sep 1, 2021Virtual
The Natural Brain: understanding neuronal computation in its natural habitat. This year's fully virtual conference will create a platform for pluralistic, interdisciplinary perspectives which aim to unify diverse ideas from different but profoundly interconnected disciplines. The goal is to promote research that attempts to study the brain as defined by neuroethological principles, taking into account ecological, rather than anthropomorphized definitions of behavior. The conference aims to explore the concept of a natural brain through different lenses: neuroscience, behavior, ecology, art.
Developmental Disorders: From Mechanism to TreatmentSep 14 - 17 , 2021Virtual
This Meeting aims to bring together developmental biologists, human geneticists, and clinical researchers who are united in the goal of understanding and treating developmental disorders. The underlying causes of developmental disorders – genetic or environmental – are often not understood. Moreover, there is a disconnect between researchers working on animal models of developmental disorders, geneticists trying to identify the genomic lesion responsible, and clinicians hoping to treat affected patients. Given the resulting urgent need to improve communication between these groups, to promote basic research into congenital anomalies and to invest in translating this research to the clinic, this meeting will focus specifically on building bridges from bench to clinic.
From Molecular Insights to Patient Stratification for Neuropsychiatric Disorders: A WorkshopOct 5 - 6 , 2021Virtual
The Forum on Neuroscience and Nervous System Disorders will host a virtual workshop that brings together experts and key stakeholders from academia, industry, government, philanthropic foundations, and disease-focused non-profit organizations to discuss new genetic and neuroscience technologies and explore how they can be used to elucidate disease mechanisms and to advance the development of biomarkers and targeted therapies for people with neuropsychiatric disorders.
Presentations and discussions will be designed to:
- Explore the critical need for ancestral diversity and inclusion of individuals with severe or less common disorders—in genetics and the biological specimens needed to follow up on genetics—to advance both scientific analyses and global health equity/precision medicine.
- Examine the use of genetics and other technologies to facilitate identification of genetic variation, understand the effects of both common and rare variants on disease relevant function, and gain insights into disease mechanisms and molecular pathways in order to identify biomarkers that enable patient stratification to advance therapeutic development.
- Highlight lessons learned from recent advances in disorders associated with rare, penetrant genetic variants, and explore how resulting lessons can be applied to more common neuropsychiatric disorders.
- Explore challenges and promising approaches to nominating and validating stratification, disease progression, and treatment biomarkers.
- Explore challenges of designing innovative clinical trials that are based on deep mechanistic understanding of diseases and coupled with target engagement strategies in patients.
- Discuss a conceptual structure and opportunities to enable advanced technologies and computational approaches to be used more broadly, effectively, and rationally for new disorders, including considering data sharing and stakeholder engagement.
The Brain Conferences: RNA Mechanisms and Brain DiseaseOct 20 - 23 , 2021Rungstedgaard, Denmark
The morphology and complexity of neurons provides unique challenges for the maintenance and modification of the neuronal transcriptome and proteome in the cell body and at synapses. In this meeting, we will explore how neurons regulate RNA molecules and protein synthesis, and how these mechanisms represent vulnerabilities for various neurological diseases.
Organized by FENS in collaboration with Lundbeck Foundation, awarder of The Brain Prize, these bi-annual conferences bring together outstanding researchers in key areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.
The Brain Conferences — Brain Stroke: Why, How, and HopeOct 24 - 27 , 2021Rungstedgaard, Denmark
Stroke is an age-related medical condition in which poor blood flow to the brain results in cell death, and is the second cause of mortality worldwide. While the disability associated with stroke can be devastatingly clear, why stroke occurs and how it kills the brain is less apparent. At this Brain conference, leading experts from both basic and clinical science will present advances that contribute to a deeper mechanistic understanding of stroke, including fundamental questions around: 1) risk factors: from single genes to holistic factors such as the microbiome, 2) the molecular pathobiology of stroke and the pathogenic role of immunity and blood-brain barrier breakdown, 3) neurovascular reorganization and re-wiring of connections after stroke damage, 4) the long term sequelae afflicting stroke survivors and the relationship between stroke and dementia, and 5) strategies to reduce the burden on stroke, ranging from prevention and acute therapy, to promoting functional recovery. A deeper mechanistic insight into these critical events will lead to new treatments and hope for those at risk and/or affected by stroke.

FENS-Hertie Winter School: Multiscale Approaches to Probe Psychiatric DisordersJan 9 - 15 , 2022Obergurgl, Austria
The recent decade witnessed dramatic improvements in treatments for a number of burdensome human diseases. Yet, it is striking the paucity of effective treatments for mental illness. Advances in neuroscience converge to the idea that the understanding, probing and treating psychiatric illness require a multi-scale approach. Bridging genetic fluctuations with remodeling of synaptic function, neural circuits, and behavior is becoming an instrumental step to envision novel interventions for psychiatric disorders. According to this hypothesis, environmental experience trigger specific forms of synaptic plasticity, as well as genetic reprogramming in precise neuronal circuits underlying aspects of disorders including depression, substance abuse, eating disorders or anxiety. Notably, latest advances indicate that the immune system interfaces many of these aspects.
Applications are now open.
