International Astrocyte School

The International Astrocyte School is aimed at all those who are attracted by the most intriguing hypotheses on the role of astrocytes and other glial cells in brain function and dysfunction and wish to learn how to best approach these problems. The school, with its strategy of disseminating state-of-the-art knowledge, is especially targeted at young scientists beginning their careers in this field, but is also open to senior scientists wishing to refresh their glial background.

Centenaire de la description du “Syndrome d’illusion des sosies” par Joseph Capgras

La matinée de cette journée anniversaire sera consacrée à la clinique et aux étiologies organiques du syndrome. Connu en Grande Bretagne depuis 1933, il y a fait l’objet de travaux en psychologie cognitive, dont l’historique sera présenté. L’après-midi, les modèles de recherche aborderont la genèse psycho-cognitive, la reconnaissance individuelle artificielle, les précurseurs de troubles psychiatriques ; et de nouvelles hypothèses sur cet « état délirant chronique nondissociatif» seront proposées.

 

La clinique – 9.30 – 12 .30 :

–        Introduction : Le syndrome de Capgras est-il une « forme naturelle » ? Jean-Pierre Luauté. Romans

Forum des Sciences Cognitives

Chaque année, Cognivence, l’association des étudiant·e·s et jeunes chercheur·e·s en sciences cognitives d’Île-de-France, organise le Forum des Sciences Cognitives, un événement de vulgarisation qui se déroule sur une journée. Des chercheur·e·s y donnent des conférences grand public tandis que des laboratoires, entreprises et associations tiennent des stands afin de rendre les sciences cognitives accessibles au plus grand nombre (plus d’informations sur les éditions précédentes).

Cette année le Forum se tiendra à Paris, le dimanche 28 avril 2024 avec pour thème “Aux frontières de la réalité : réalité perçue, imaginée, virtuelle”.

EMBO Workshop Molecular neurobiology 13 – 17 May 2024 | Heraklion, Greece

This EMBO Workshop aims to bring together researchers working on molecular processes in the nervous system. It emphasizes cross-disciplinary research and promotes collaboration between the structural biology, biophysics and “in vivo” communities. The talks will be on the latest breakthroughs in structural biology, advanced imaging, and advanced biological models in neurobiology. The programme is designed to promote discussion of cutting-edge methods and results.

The sessions will cover aspects of neuronal cell navigation and differentiation, cell-surface receptor signaling, synapse biology, neuronal wiring, methods development, and will highlight progress in understanding associated diseases mechanisms.

Given its cross-disciplinary nature, this EMBO Workshop presents a broad overview of the field, excellent opportunities for discussion, and an insight into the latest technologies. It provides a space for learning, for forging new collaborations, and for presenting ideas that will determine the future of molecular neurobiology.

All information related to the program, location, registration/accomodation fees, travel grants, registration fee waivers, child care grants, abstract guidelines, poster specifications, etc, can be found at https://meetings.embo.org/event/24-mol-neurobiology

Target audience

All participants will be selected based on their match with the scientific scope of the meeting. We will aim for a geographical, junior/senior and gender balance. In addition to the invited speakers, we will select 18 speakers from submitted abstracts. When selecting these speakers, we will prioritize “early stage” researchers, aiming for a balance of students, postdocs, and new PIs. As an “early stage” we will consider researchers with ~ < 7 years post-PhD. We will take special circumstances into account, for example, if maternity leave has delayed a research career.

Methods of payment

Registration Deadline: 6 March 2024

Abstract Submission Deadline: 6 March 2024

Chosen Participants Will Be Notified By: 13 March 2024

Summer School “Innovations: Neuroscience in the public and private sectors”

This Summer School is specially conceived for Master 2 students, PhD students, post-docs and researchers in Occitanie, a region rich in neuroscientific potential. It aims to complement their essentially science-based training by providing them with entrepreneurial skills and expanding their professional network.

Each morning, participants will have the opportunity to attend lectures given by neuroscience researchers and neurologists. These presentations will explore the latest advances in the field, combining public and private sector approaches. Researchers from the NeurATRIS and non-NeurATRIS networks will be on hand to give students from the Occitanie region access to speakers they wouldn’t otherwise have access to in their traditional regional curriculum.

The afternoon will be devoted to inspiring testimonials and practical support in setting up start-ups, establishing CROs (Clinical Research Organizations) and valorizing patents. Experts will share their experience and advice to help participants turn their innovative ideas in the neurosciences into reality.

In addition, a workshop dedicated to “Scientific Communication” will be led by Elodie Chabrol, a former neuroscientist specializing in scientific communication. This cross-disciplinary module will enable participants to acquire an essential skill for their careers, whether in the public or private sector.
