Dynamics of the brain: temporal aspects of computation

The brain is an extraordinarily complex dynamical system whose critical operations run over timescales ranging from the sub-millisecond (e.g., auditory perception), to the circadian (e.g., sleep and homeostatic phenomena), to weeks and years (e.g., learning and memory). Brain circuits express collective properties that can be detected macroscopically, such as traveling waves or oscillations, but recent developments also reveal, through large scale recordings of neuron populations, smaller-scale spatiotemporal phenomena such as transient dynamics (spatio-temporal multi-neuronal activation patterns in response to odours, in preparation for action, in “replay » during sleep). Those dynamics suggest strong constraints on the orchestration of activity in brain circuits. This conference will explore experimental and theoretical approaches to understand the underpinnings of such dynamics and their relevance for computation in the brain.


Organised by FENS in collaboration with Lundbeck Foundation, awarder of The Brain Prize,  these bi-annual conferences bring together outstanding researchers in key areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.

LiCEND Summer School 2019: Experimental Models for Neurodegenerative Disease: From Cells to Model Organisms

The objectives of the LiCEND Summer School are to present a large selection of experimental models and technological applications dedicated to the investigation of neurodegenerative diseases.


The LiCEND Summer School 2019 is based on the expertise of the Lille neuroscientists’ teams as well as highly-skilled international and French specialists. Gathering of such experts allows to propose an attractive and innovative training to the (future) researchers on neurodenegerative diseases.


Objectives: to present a large selection of experimental models and technological applications dedicated to the investigation of neurodegenerative diseases.


Currently, different experimental models are used to study the neurodegenerative mechanisms and associated processes, such as normal ageing, and to investigate a large variety of parameters: genetic and environmental factors,  impact of metabolism, interaction with the immune system, cellular and molecular mechanisms, molecular screening, evaluation of therapeutic strategies… It is crucial to keep this in mind and to choose accordingly for each research project, which model(s) would be the most appropriate to fulfill the needs but also to know their limits (scientific relevancy, available tools and technologies, costs…).


The LiCEND Summer School 2019 “Experimental approaches to study neurodegenerative disorders in biology: from the cell dish to the model organisms” aims to provide students and professionals, a global view of experimental models of neurodegeneration with their respective “pro” and “cons” aspects.


Each session will be organized around one type of experimental models with 2 to 4 talks given by recognized specialists. The 3R rules have been considered while building those sessions, presenting alternative models to replace animals  or allowing researcher to refine their experimentation by choosing the most efficient models to explore neurodegenerative diseases.

  • Cellular models
  • Invertebrae models (C. Elegans, drosophila)
  • Zebrafish model
  • Small mammals models (mouse and rat)
  • Large mammals models


Application open until the 26/06/2019 _ Early bird fee until the 30/04/2019

Limited number of application: 60

Summer School 2019: « Experimental Models for Neurodegenerative Disease: From Cells to Model Organisms »

L’objectif de la LiCEND Summer School 2019: « Experimental Models for Neurodegenerative Disease: From Cells to Model Organisms » est de présenter un large panel de modèles expérimentaux et d’applications technologiques dédié à l’étude des maladies neurodégénératives.

Dans l’esprit d’ouvrir la formation aux participants internationaux, l’ensemble de la formation sera assurée en anglais.

La majorité des sessions s’articuleront autour d’un modèle expérimental avec 2 à 4 interventions par session effectuées par des experts reconnus. La règle des 3R a été mise en compte dans l’organisation des sessions afin de “remplacer” en présentant des modèles alternatifs aux animaux et afin de “raffiner ” les expérimentations en choisissant les modèles les plus pertinents pour l’investigation des maladies neurodégénératives:

Modèles cellulaires;
Modèles invertébrés (C. Elegans, Drosophile);
Modèle poisson-zèbre;
Modèles petits mammifères (souris, rat);
Modèles gros mammifères;

Des sessions plus transversales s’y joindront: sessions sur les thématiques actuelles en clinique, session éthique sur la communication au sujet de l’expérimentation animale, et conférence grand public sur le développement de nouveaux traitements.

On behalf of the ISCBFM President and the Local Organizing Committee, we invite the members of the French Neuroscience Society to join us at YOKOHAMA BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2019, the 29th International Symposium on Cerebral Blood Flow, Metabolism and Function and the 14th International Conference on Quantification of Brain Function with PET to be held in Yokohama, Japan from July 4th – 7th 2019. Following the tradition of previous meetings, BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2019 will cover numerous aspects within the area of neuroscience research, particularly those related to brain function and metabolism, cerebral blood flow, the function of the neurovascular unit and the blood-brain barrier, brain imaging, brain repair, and cerebrovascular pathology.

Our goal is to present the state-of-the art and novel discoveries that will increase our understanding of brain function under physiological and pathological conditions through basic, translational, and clinical investigation. Leading scientist in these fields, members of the International Society for Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism (ISCBFM, http://iscbfm.org) and other exceptional scientists will participate as in our previous biannual meetings. The program committee is actively working to create an engaging scientific program that will be of interest to scientists working in all fields of neuroscience, from basic to clinical and applied research.

Yokohama, the second largest city in Japan, is located next to Tokyo along the coastline of the Pacific Ocean. The city has long prospered as an international port city trading with foreign countries that opened to the world in 1859, as it had favorable facilities to host ships from abroad. Since that time, Yokohama has been vigorously acquiring new cultures and information from other countries, and it developed a reputation as the source for new information from abroad that was disseminated around Japan, hence its nickname as the birthplace of Japan’s modern culture.

It is designed to gather scientists developing experimental, theoretical as well as modelling approaches in the search for principles that underlie the similar spatial and temporal organisation and dynamics across scales and biological contexts.


The meeting will take place in Cargèse (Corsica, France) from September 30 to October 4, 2019. The workshop is a unique opportunity to foster new collaborations and exchange about a wide range of topics in life science, especially cell biology and biophysics, developmental biology, neuroscience and immunology.


The event will tackle the spatial and temporal patterns across scales found in biological systems (such as cell migration and tissue morphogenesis, cell polarization and cell movement) and will try to answer to several questions such as How do such spatial and temporal dynamics arise? What are the respective contributions of biological control and self-organization?


CENTURI 2019 scientific meeting will include talks given by high level invited speakers from all over the world, as well as short talks and poster sessions.


Registrations to CENTURI 2019 scientific meeting are open until July 30, 2019.

To give a short talk or present a poster, please submit your abstracts before May 31, 2019.

Reward – 6th Bordeaux Neurocampus conference

The Bordeaux Neurocampus Conferences are a serie of Neuroscience meetings, organized in Bordeaux, France.

The purpose of the conferences is to present and discuss recent findings in a topic field in Neuroscience, bringing together leading international experts and young researchers. The maximum number of participants is 250, including invited speakers. The scientific program is organized jointly by members of Bordeaux Neurocampus and the LabEx Brain.

The Bordeaux Neurocampus Conferences are 3-day meetings that take place in autumn at Bordeaux University, France. About 20 presentations are given by invited speakers, and the schedule encourages lively discussion, in particular during the poster sessions.

Normal and pathological reward processing: from synapse to behavior
Essential feature of the human as well as the animal brain is its ability to process information on-line in order to efficiently adapt behavior to a changing environment. The brain constantly integrates new sensory information and adjusts its behavioral responses to maximize reward and / or minimize unpleasant and even dangerous consequences for the organism. The question here is to highlight brain regions that share the ability to “reward” the performance of vital functions such as feeding, exploration of new environments, initiation of new social interactions, reproduction and appropriate reaction to threat? The mesocorticolimbic dopaminergic system was the first neural circuit to be described in this context and is closely related to the whole reward system. Are there other brain reward systems? What happens in the brains of patients with autism spectrum disorders, addiction to drugs or sports, anxiety or depressive symptoms, Parkinson’s disease, whose reward system is altered? Answers to these questions do not reach consensus and will be debated during the three days of this conference.
