    Janelia Research Campus
    Related State-Dependence of Sensation and Behavior

    This meeting will gather researchers to discuss how various sensory pathways interface with the neural circuits controlling states: where in brain and body they converge, the dynamics of those interactions and the consequences for behavioral outcomes. Work in diverse species, including mouse, fruit fly and human, will be covered. Deadline to apply: May 20, 2020

    The Pike Lake
    Related Transylvanian Experimental Neuroscience Summer School (TENSS) 2020

    UPDATE:
    This event has been postponed to June 2021. Stay tuned for more information.

    TENSS concentrates top-level international expertise to teach a dozen students techniques and concepts in experimental systems neuroscience. We focus on modern optical and electrophysiological methods to study the connectivity and function of neuronal circuits. The course is designed to be intensive and highly interactive, including both lab sessions and theoretical lectures. Coursework will take place in a land of myth and legend, beyond large forests (Transylvania), on the shores of a picturesque natural reserve called Pike Lake. Applications are welcome from interested (and interesting) graduate students and postdocs. Application deadline: March 1st 2020
