OHBM Mini-Conference at FENS

OHBM mini conference: Multiscale, Multimethod Human Brain Mapping
(part of FENS Forum 2020)

Saturday, July 11, 2020 | 8.00-11.30  British summer time (GMT+1)
Registration Fee: None!

The mini conference will explore multiple levels of structural and functional organization, across multi-scale networks in human, monkey and rodent brains. Speakers will range in expertise from neuronal and subneuronal microcircuitry, up to macroscale regional organization relevant for system-level approaches to understanding brain processes. The aim is to provide participants with state of the art neuroscience methodologies and theories, taking a multidisciplinary approach to data that bridges the gap between different levels of brain organization, including neuronal, high-field (7T) human brain imaging and behavioural measures, and computational modeling and network simulations. Speakers will describe their contribution to overarching goals of multi-scale, multi-method neuroscience, from advancing knowledge of human cognition to disease-related alterations.
