Ernst Strüngmann Institute Systems Neuroscience Conference 2022

We are happy to announce that the Ernst Strüngmann Institute Systems Neuroscience Conference 2022 -9th ESI SyNC- will take place in-person this year, on September 8th and 9th at the Ernst Strüngmann Institute in Frankfurt, Germany. A hybrid format will be implemented, such that online participation is also possible.

This year’s topic is “The ever-changing brain – through development and evolution”. Eleven speakers will discuss their research and views on the development, organization, and evolution of the brain from a wide array of viewpoints: from anatomy to function, from the microcircuit to whole-brain network level, from the origins of cognition in single-celled organisms to complex social behavior in primates. This year’s conference is a great platform to learn about comparative neuroscience, organizational and evolutionary aspects of neural processing, and developmental mechanisms of cognitive and sensory systems.

Young researchers will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and raise questions in formal and informal discussions. There will also be a poster session for which we welcome submissions.

This year’s exciting line-up:

Detlev Arendt (European Molecular Biology Laboratory EMBL, Heidelberg, GER)
Rosa Cossart (Inmed, Aix-Marseille University, Marseille, FR)
Onur Güntürkün (Ruhr-Universität Bochum, GER)
