16th International Neuroscience Winter Conference

This conference has been established as a high-quality meeting on contemporary neuroscience in the past years. For the 16th conference we aim at topping previous programs by inviting most distinguished neuroscientists as keynote speakers and select high-quality symposia. Soelden is an Alpine village about 1 hr drive from the city of Innsbruck in Austria. The venue is a 5-star Spa hotel in one of the largest ski resorts in Austria with a restaurant carrying prestigious awards by international restaurant guides. Normally, 120 - 150 participants, among them a large number of recognized scientists share the opportunity to meet colleagues in a relaxed and cosy atmosphere. During the day, time for skiing in the high altitude ski resort is perfectly possible even in April.

Themes:
Learning-related dynamics in neuronal circuits in vivo
From circuits to behaviour: Sensorimotor interactions in neural processing
Nanophysiology of presynaptic Ca2+ signaling
Cellular trafficking in the brain
Rapid cross-talk between synaptic receptors: A key path of synaptic plasticity Ca2+ signaling and synaptic transmission
Coupling excocytotic neurotransmitter release to endocytic membrane retrieval
Tracing neural processing hierarchies in auditory function
Functions of lyso-phosphatidic acid (LPA) signalling pathways in the CNS
Multiple sclerosis: New vistas
Mitochondrial dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease
Glutamatergic transmission in schizophrenia
New strategies targeting diverse neural cells for regenerative neurobiology
Multivariate and genome-wide approaches in imaging genetics
