The Cortical Evolution symposium occurred recently, a confluence of minds focusing on the progression of mammalian and primate cerebral cortexes. The symposium served as a platform to expand our comprehension of cortical evolution's impact on both normal and abnormal human brain functions.
Esteemed academics from research institutions spanning from the Americas to Asia attended. The conference attracted approximately 200 participants, an assortment of faculty and students, each contributing their studies in a visual and engaging poster presentation format. In addition, a select group of six abstracts were given the opportunity for concise oral presentations.
The symposium was organized into five distinct sessions, encapsulating a wide range of themes. These spanned Paleoanthropology, Cortical Development, Cortical Expansion, Evolution of Cellular Types, and concluded with Evolution of Cortex and Behavior, ensuring an in-depth exploration of cortical evolution.
