Concours Beautiful Science

En partenariat avec la Société des Neurosciences

Ouverture du concours d’images & sons
Beautiful Science

Parce que la science rime aussi avec beauté, créativité et émerveillement, redécouvrons le monde magnifique et mystérieux qui nous entoure à l’occasion du concours Beautiful Science, le concours d’images & sons lancé par la Société Française de Physique à l’occasion de son prochain Congrès Général.

Parrainé par le collectif OBVIOUS (ces 3 jeunes français à l’origine de la première peinture générée par intelligence artificielle), le concours est ouvert à tous et à toutes les sciences. Son thème “Montrer la science dans ce qu’elle a de plus beau et de plus élégant, de l’infiniment petit à l’infiniment grand !”

Date limite du concours : 19 mai 2019

7th Mediterranean Neuroscience Conference

La 7th Mediterranean Neuroscience Conference se tiendra à Marrakech au Maroc. Après Malte en 2017, Pula en Sardaigne en 2015, Istanbul en 2012 et Alexandrie en 2009, la Société Méditérranéenne de Neurosciences (MNS) a décidé de nous confier l’organisation de cet évènement dans un pays sud-méditerranéen afin de faciliter la participation des Neuroscientifiques du Sud et d’Afrique. Ce congrès international attire de plus en plus de participants du monde entier puisque nous avons reçu 71 propositions de symposiums avec des orateurs de 33 pays différents.

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.

CONGRESS BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2019

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.

2019 Neurodynamics Symposium

First Edition of Neurodynamics Symposium in Grenoble !!

Recent technologies have made it possible to study the in-vivo physiology of neurons, the dynamics of large scale neuronal ensembles and the neural circuits that connect different structures…

but how do these give rise to different brain functions?

This symposium aims to link three components: conceptual expertise, computational modeling and state-of-the-art methodologies, to advance our understanding of brain functions related to cognition and motivation.

The program will enclose poster sessions, oral presentations selected on abstract and oral talks of invited speakers (preliminar program to be announced soon!).

When? 4-5 July, 2019

Where? Maison Minatec Conference Center, Grenoble, France

 

REGISTRATION OPENING and ABSTRACT SUBMISSION : 1st February 2019 – May 15th 2019

FENS Regional Meeting 2019

Jointly organized by the Neuroscience Societies of Serbia, Romania and Turkey,

the FRM 2019 will take place in Belgrade, Serbia, from 10 to 13 July 2019

 

It is our great pleasure to announce that the next FENS Regional Meeting, FRM2019, will be in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. The meeting will be jointly organised by the Neuroscience Societies of Serbia, Romania and Turkey.
These three societies come together for the first time with the aim of boosting the development of neuroscience in the entire region by organising a meeting with an exciting  programme reflecting the latest discoveries and technological developments.

 

The last FENS regional meeting was held in Pécs, Hungary, 20-23 September 2017 and organised by the Hungarian Neuroscience Society. Its excellent mix of scientific, social and outreach events attracted nearly 900 participants.

 

FENS Regional Meetings are national or regional scientific meetings organised by FENS member societies with strong FENS support. FRMs are biennial meetings and alternate with the FENS Forums.

 

Deadline for abstract submission and early registration extension – 1 May 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.

NEXT CONFERENCE : 2-4 OCTOBER, 2019
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.
