Understanding the Brain: Neurobiology for Non-Specialists

Innsbruck, Austria

July 3, 2017 – July 5, 2017

The aim of this interactive workshop is to provide practical insights into basic and translational neuroscience research for interested non-specialists.

The topics addressed range from essential neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, over IPS cells, to networks and behaviour. Plasticity and modulation of networks and signal transmission under physiological (like learning and memory) and pathological situations (like addiction, epilepsy or neurodegeneration) will form an essential part.

Lectures and tutorials will be accompanied by lab visits, practical work, and an open discussion round. Experts in functional neuroanatomy, neurobiochemistry, neuropharmacology, and psychiatry from Medical University Innsbruck (Austria), the Allen Institute for Brain Science (USA), and the Human Brain Project (HBP) will be available onsite.

This workshop is open to the whole student community and early post-docs upon application. Applications from young female investigators are highly encouraged.
