Applications open for The Brain Prize course: Hippocampus from Circuits to Cognition

The Brain Prize course: Hippocampus from Circuits to Cognition

Over the past 50 years, the hippocampus has been one of the most intensely studied areas in the brain, and the field has made major breakthroughs in understanding its anatomical connectivity and function. New technical and scientific advances, in turn, have opened up new opportunities for mechanistic investigations of hippocampal function at the level of cells, systems, and cortico-hippocampal networks.

As part of the CAJAL Advanced Neuroscience Training Programme, The Brain Prize course will be held 10-31 October 2016 at the Bordeaux Neurocampus, France. The goal of the course is is to give promising young neuroscientists in-depth exposure to the breadth of research on the hippocampus and to provide hands-on training in state-of-the-art methods used to study hippocampal function.

Course directors:

  • Jozsef Csicsvari, Institute of Science and Technology, Austria
  • Charan Ranganath, University of California, USA

Keynote speakers include 2011 Brain Prize winners Gyorgy Buzsaki (NYU School of Medicine) and Tamás Freund (Institute of Experimental Medicine HAS, Budapest).
