FENS 2022 Satellite meeting – The Neuroarcheology of brain disorders and GABA signals
The core of the program of this satellite meeting is the concept of neuro-archeology that Yéhézkel BEN-ARI developed some years ago and the implications this has on treating brain disorders and of course the GABA polarity shift that is fundamental in brain development and altered by a large variety of brain disorders.
The meeting include speakers from a large range of expertise extending from drug development to clinicians and basic scientists.
Developing neurons generate unique Ionic currents and patterns, these validate the formation of functional brain networks. Early insults deviate these processes leading to misplaced/misconnected neurons that remain immature as extensively shown with the depolarizing/excitatory actions of GABA in immature neurons and many neurodevelopmental (Autism, Rett, FRX, etc.) and neurodegenerative disorders (Huntington’s or Parkinson disease).
This satellite meeting is aimed at bringing together basic scientists, clinicians and experts of drug development to illustrate why understanding brain development is required to treat brain disorders. Undergraduate and postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to submit a 1- page summary of their research. 1 PhD student and 1 Postdoc amongst the proposals will be selected by the scientific committee to present their project during a 10min talk, and receive 2K€ and 3K€ respectively.
Registration is mandatory and a maximum of 150 places are available.
