Neurogenesis during Development and in the Adult Brain
joint with Transcriptional and Epigenetic Control in Stem Cells
Organizer(s): Alysson R. Muotri, Kinichi Nakashima and Xinyu ZhaoDate: January 08 - 12, 2017
Location: Resort at Squaw Creek, Olympic Valley, CA, USA
The complexity of the brain, with thousands of neuronal types, permits the development of sophisticated cognitive and behavioral repertoires. Neurogenesis, the fundamental phenomenon that creates the brain, starts early during development and continues in adult life, shaping our networks in close association with the environment. This unique meeting will explore neurogenesis from different perspectives, bringing new insights about the fundamental mechanisms that control normal brain development and that contribute to disease situations when this process is altered. It brings together scientists working on different aspects of neurogenesis to exchange ideas and facilitate novel collaborative projects. The pairing of the meeting with a stem cell meeting will enhance the opportunity for interactions among researchers from different fields pursuing similar questions.
