Principal themes and objectives
The Ascona Meetings on Neuronal Circuits have been a leading forum on neuronal circuit research worldwide for more than a decade. The Ascona 2015 Neuronal Circuits Meeting will feature neuronal circuit research in a broad range of organisms including humans. It will present work on how specific neuronal circuits encode information and drive behavior, on the developmental and genetic basis of circuit function, on how circuit adjustments and brain states influence learning and behavior, on the emergence of higher cognitive functions in neocortical areas, and on what evolutionary comparison of circuits across species can teach us about how the nervous system functions.
