EMBO Workshop on Cortical interneurons in health and disease
June 17, 2018 - June 20, 2018
In this EMBO Workshop, we will bring together world-class scholars with very different perspectives on the biology of cortical interneurons. The main goal of our meeting is to encourage the interaction between experts with very diverse backgrounds, from developmental neurobiology to systems neuroscience, to address some of the more compelling questions in this flourishing field of research. We will reproduce the format of a meeting that we have successfully organized before but focusing on a completely new set of questions. Experts will discuss new advances on interneuron disorders, emerging aspects on the biology of human interneurons, the impact of interneuron function on cortical operations, and novel insights into the origins of their diversity.
