Invertebrate Neurobiology

We are pleased to announce the Cold Spring Harbor Asia conference onInvertebrate Neurobiology which will be held at the Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center in Suzhou, China, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai. The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Monday June 18, and will conclude after lunch on Friday June 22, 2012.

This conference is similar in design to the famous Cold Spring Harbor meetings series, a program now in its 76th year. The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.

Major Topics:
- Neural development
- Neural function and synaptic plasticity
- Neural circuits and behaviors
- Sensory and motor systems
- Learning and memory
- Evolution of nervous systems
- Modeling human neurological diseases
- Neural techniques
