AIAS Symposium: Cutting Edge Technologies for Neurobiology

20 September 2018

The Brain is one of the most complex and amazing organs in our body. It essentially controls everything that we perceive and all of our actions.  An understanding of molecular to circuit-level mechanisms of brain functions, including perception, cognition and consciousness in health and disease, is one of the most challenging subjects of basic science in the 21st century.  To achieve this ambitious goal, it is essential to apply multidisciplinary and state-of-art technology to neurobiology.  In this one day symposium, A range of experts from multidisciplinary fields will introduce their development of cutting-edge technologies and the application of these techniques to answering fundamental questions in neurobiology.


Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies (AIAS), Aarhus University, Buildings 1630-1632, Høegh-Guldbergs Gade 6B, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark. See location on a map.
