NeuroBridges2019 summer school

NeuroBridges2019 is a summer school which will take place between September 8 and September 19, 2019 in Cluny, France. The school will provide an overview of theoretical and experimental frameworks used to study a variety of decision making processes. It will cover a different model systems from rats to humans and a plethora of decision making mechanisms.
Another objective of Neurobridges is to bring together Mediterranean and Middle Eastern scientists, in order to promote scientific cooperation between young researchers from these countries. The organizers of NeuroBridges are convinced that such scientific collaborations can lead to personal relations, which eventually may alleviate the political distress in the Middle East.

For more information and application: visit our website.

NeuroBridges is co-organized by Ahmed El Hady (Princeton Neuroscience Institute, USA), Yonatan Loewenstein (Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel) and David Hansel (CNRS, Paris, France).

CENTURI 2019 scientific meeting

CENTURI 2019 scientific meeting will be an interdisciplinary workshop focusing on « Self-organization in multicellular systems ». 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.

Welcome to the XVIth International Symposium on Cholinergic Mechanisms (ISCM-XVI), scheduled for December 8th-13th, 2019. The symposium will be held in the Lopatie Conference Center on the campus of the Weizmann Institute of Science, in Rehovot, Israel.

The first International Symposium on Cholinergic Mechanisms (ISCM) was organized by the late Edith Heilbronn. It took place in Skokloster, Sweden, in 1970. The ISCMs have been held triennially since then, the most recent being ISCM-XV, in Marseille, in October, 2016. The principal objective of these conferences is to survey progress in the understanding of the molecular, cellular, pharmacological, toxicological, behavioral and clinical aspects of the cholinergic system, and to bring fundamental and applied scientists together so as to survey and discuss the most recent developments in cholinergic research. It has also been a tradition to publish the proceedings, so as to provide a comprehensive picture of the cholinergic field at the time of the symposium.
