The Neuron SFN satellite Cell Symposium brings together leading researchers in the field to discuss the big questions in neuroscience today.

This year’s “Big Questions” span from how to understand the complexity of the human brain to the cellular features of neurons and non-neural cells and will feature visionary scientists with an eye to the future of the field.

The meeting will bring together speakers and the audience in a dynamic conversation with a mixture of presentations and discussions on the latest advances in neuroscience.

Topics include:

Human Neuroscience: How can we understand the unique features of the human brain, from genetics to networks?

Coordinated Cognition: How does the brain connect perception, attention, and goal-directed thought?

The Brain in Balance: How does the brain maintain stability in the face of fluctuating conditions?

Neuronal Cell Biology: How do the cellular features of neurons influence their function?

Beyond the Neuron: How do cells and systems beyond neurons contribute to the nervous system?
