Early-Life Adversity and Resilience: Multi-Disciplinary Perspectives in a Rapidly Changing World

This multidisciplinary conference will bring together experts in various fields in early-life adversity and children’s/youth mental health and well-being. Neurobiologists will focus on the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of early-life adversity, vulnerability and resilience and related psycho-affective disorders. They will highlight the social and clinical implications of their studies investigating the effects of stress-related and other biological factors during the critical period. Specialists in the psychological and clinical domains will bring their professional experience from their work with children and youth-related programs. Educators and policy-makers will discuss practical and logistical considerations in implementing pro-development and mental health awareness programs at the community and societal levels. This conference is a unique opportunity that provides space for inter-disciplinary dialogue. It hopes to bring to the panel diverse perspectives that can mutually inform each other and collectively forge broadly received recommendations and plan of action to address the growing concerns regarding the global youth mental health crisis. These resolutions aim to contribute to a wider movement that works towards a better integrated vision of a future world able to better protect the well-being of children and youth.

Deadline for registration: 31/07/2024

International Symposium: Signals and Circuits for motivation and movement

Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter in the brain that modulates complex behaviors such as movement, reward, motivation, and memory. The activity of dopaminoceptive neurons in the forebrain is altered in a variety of conditions, including Parkinson’s disease, addiction, and schizophrenia.
Unraveling the molecular signals and circuits involved in the actions of dopamine in the normal and pathological brain has been the focus of Jean-Antoine Girault’s scientific career, collaborating with prominent international leaders and making seminal discoveries in this rapidly expanding field.

The 2024 IFM Colloquium, organized in honor of Jean-Antoine Girault’s career, will showcase 12 keynote speakers who will address various aspects of neurotransmission and signaling in the striatal circuits underlying motivation and movement, both in physiological conditions and in various disorders that mainly affect dopaminergic signaling (e.g., Parkinson’s disease, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or drug addiction). Our goal is to cover most aspects of basal ganglia involvement in action selection and procedural learning (i.e., habit formation), as well as related disorders, to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date view of this dynamic field.

Space and time will be allocated to poster presentations.

Membrane Trafficking in Health and Disease: Focus on Neurological Diseases

In the last thirty years, tremendous progress has been made in the elucidation of the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating membrane trafficking and turnover in mammalian cells, e.g., exocytosis, endocytosis and the lysosomal clearance of proteins and lipids through autophagy. The field is now able to explore how defects of membrane trafficking can lead to diseases, particularly neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. The school will overview the last decades of seminal advances in the field: the lessons learned about regulated and unconventional exocytosis, the role of lysosomes in degradation and secretion, the dynamics, metabolism and signalling of lipids, and the role of the immune system in regulating the synapse and neuronal function.

EITN EBRAINS Fall School in Computational Neuroscience

The EITN Fall School in Computational Neuroscience consists of a 10-day course in theoretical and computational neuroscience, from cellular to whole-brain levels. The course is structured in thematic days with lectures, tutorials, and project work.

The course is typically aimed for PhD students, young postdocs, or master students interested to learn more about techniques of computational neuroscience, and the use of various simulation environments for model building. The students will form thematic groups to work on predefined subjects, with the help of tutors.

The course will cover cellular models, models of brain signals, circuit models and networks, mean-field models, and whole-brain models. There will be lectures and tutorials associated with these topics.

30e Meeting in Toxinology (RT30) of the French Society for Toxinology (SFET)

The French Society on Toxinology (SFET, http://sfet.asso.fr/international/) is a small non-profit association created in 1993 in accordance with the “French law 1901” status. Since then, 29 SFET Meetings were held in Paris, France, and three others were co-organized with foreign toxinology societies (IST, GT, SITOX). Since 2005, the official language of the meeting is English. This year, for the very first time the 30th meeting (RT30) will take place in Hôtel Saint-Paul in the beautiful city of Nice (https://lesaintpaul-hotel.fr/).

As every year, this event will bring together about a hundred researchers, doctors, pharmacists, industrials, and students involved in toxin research, whatever the plant, bacterial, or animal origin of these toxins. In addition to the traditional nine invited speakers, who are international experts in this field of research (see our preliminary programme), other French and foreign researchers will be presenting oral communications selected on abstracts and/or posters.
