Nagoya International Symposium on Neural Circuits (Nagoya BNC Symposiumu)
Date: 2016/7/30, Sat. 11:00-17:00
Venue: Toyoda Auditorium, Nagoya University

We are happy to announce the 3rd Nagoya BNC International Symposium, to be held on July 30th, 2016, as a satellite meeting of CeNeuro2016. Researchers within and outside Japan, who are currently studying or will be interested in studying a variety of aspects of neural circuits in small organisms such as C. elegans, fruit fly, zebrafish and crustaceans, will be expected to gather to share their expertise. The symposium has been held regularly by the Nagoya Research Center for Brain & Neural Circuits, launched in October 2014 at the initiative of Drs. Ikue Mori, Azusa Kamikouchi and Hiroko Bannai at Nagoya University.
Brains of small animals are of growing importance as the power plant of research for the “understanding neuronal basis of animal behavior at single-cell level”. This is because their neural circuits have the benefit of being easily accessible with cellular level analysis, combined with the use of genetic engineering and imaging techniques. This meeting, held in conjunction with CeNeuro2016, will surely be an opportunity in which hundreds of researchers with diverse scientific disciplines will meet together, share ideas and start collaborations.
