21st Biennial Meeting of the International Society for Developmental Neuroscience
From stem cells to behaviour in the normal and diseased nervous system

Join us in Antibes, along the beautiful Mediterranean coast of Southern France, for an exciting and diverse scientific programme that will provide an opportunity to keep you informed about the most recent advances in fundamental and disease-focused developmental neuroscience.

Organised by the International Society for Developmental Neuroscience (ISDN), this meeting will include a balance of topics on human and animal models of neural development and disease:

  • Pluripotent stem cell approaches in the normal and diseased brain
  • Stem cells and psychiatric disorders
  • Evolution of the mammalian cortex
  • Autophagy in neurodegenerative diseases
  • Generation of cell diversity in the developing brain
  • Wnt signalling in neurodevelopment
  • Hypothalamic cell fate specification and function
  • From circuits to behaviour
  • Control of neuronal morphology, from genes to activity
  • Sensorimotor assembly and integration
  • The role of microRNAs in neurogenesis
  • Neurobiology of stress
  • Sleep evolution in childhood and brain development
  • Astrocyte development and function

As in previous years, ISDN will provide a number of travel and poster awards for trainees.
