JUNE 21-23, 2023
The Cortical Evolution symposium will promote the dissemination of novel ideas and concepts underlying evolution of the mammalian and primate cerebral cortex. The goal of this conference is to further our understanding of the factors involved in cortical evolution that are relevant for human brain function under normal and pathological conditions. Experts from prestigious research universities in the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia will present their most recent findings at the meeting. 200 faculty and students are expected to attend, and all attendees will have the opportunity to present their work in poster format. In addition, six abstracts will be selected for a short oral presentation. The meeting will be organized into 5 sessions, with each session dedicated to the following topics: Paleoanthropology Cortical Development Cortical Expansion Evolution of cellular types Evolution of Cortex and Behavior.
2023 CONFERENCE, STRUCTURE, FUNCTION AND DEVELOPMENT OF NEURAL CIRCUITS
AUGUST 21-23, 2023
Beckman Center of the National Academies of Science & Engineering, Irvine, CA
The main Conference will take place at the Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences & Engineering near the UC Irvine campus located in the beautiful city of Irvine in Southern California. Additional workshops will take place on UCI campus. The UC Irvine Center for Neural Circuit Mapping (CNCM) continues to host annual neural circuit conferences, following the success of our in-person 2021 and 2022 conferences. We are looking to host an even more front-of-the-field conference in 2023 with thought leaders in neuroscience who will bring unique perspectives to the theme of integrating the different facets of neural circuits – structure, function, development and disease.
