  • Neuronal Connectivity in Brain Function and Disease: Novel Mechanisms and Therapeutic Targets

    Tuesday, March 22, 2016 | 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Biochemical Pharmacology Discussion Group

    The brain is a puzzle of remarkable genetic, structural and functional complexity. Ambitious projects aim to map the mammalian brain and define its circuitry on an ultrastructural level. These efforts are complemented by conceptual advances into how development and experience shape the connectivity underlying its most basic functions. Our symposium will address both: the importance of structural synaptic plasticity in shaping neuronal connections and circuitry, and the technical advances enabling the functional analysis of brain ultrastructure and circuitry. We will discuss how mapping the brain circuitry and its relationship to behavior will help us to understand the formation of thoughts and emotions as functional outputs of brain connectivity, as well as the current and future applications of these novel insights for diagnosis and therapy.
