Learning, Memory and Synaptic Plasticity

The Brain Conferences

The Brain Prize was awarded in 2016 for “ground-breaking research on the cellular and molecular basis of Long-Term Potentiation and the demonstration that this form of synaptic plasticity underpins spatial memory and learning.”

Research on LTP and LTD, and their possible functions is now extending to include diverse aspects of memory encoding and consolidation, including areas of emotional learning in brain structures beyond the hippocampus. There is also growing interest in how dysfunction of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity is a likely contributor to a variety of neurological and psychiatric diseases. The aim of this Brain Conference is to bring together world experts to discuss the major issues in the field.

Co-Chairs:

  • Richard Morris (The University of Edinburgh, UK)  
  • Robert Malenka (Stanford University, USA)

The Brain Conferences establish a series of high-level meetings on neuroscience in Europe. Organised by FENS in collaboration with The Brain Prize, these bi-annual conferences bring together outstanding researchers in key broadly defined areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.

  • Early registration deadline: January 23, 2017
  • Regular registration deadline: February 14, 2017

Registration includes abstract submission and poster presentation.
