State of the Brain: Genetic Dissection of Brain Circuits and Behavior in Health and Disease
Organizer(s): Sean Hill, Hongkui Zeng, Z. Josh Huang and György Buzsáki
Date: January 14 - 18, 2018
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Lead Sponsor: Allen Institute for Brain Science
Summary of Meeting:
Identifying and understanding the building blocks of the nervous system and how they interact is a central focus of international efforts to understand the brain. Modern genetic approaches hold the promise of establishing an inventory of cell types, exploring mechanisms of cellular identity, developing tools for experimental manipulations, building a brain-wide cell type atlas, and providing the basis of establishing brain-wide connectivity atlases at cellular resolution. Understanding how diseases and disorders impact cells, synapses and circuitry is essential to guide the development of treatments and therapies. Creating such an atlas of genetically identified cell types and their connectivity will provide key data and knowledge for developing in silico reconstructions of brain circuitry and developing theories of brain structure and function. This conference brings together leading scientists from around the world to present the latest tools, techniques and discoveries in using genetic approaches to understand the cell types of the brain and their role in cognition, behavior and brain diseases and disorders.
